Summary: Do you practice "healthy eating", consuming your "five portions of fruit and vegetables" per day and shunning fats in favour of complex carbohydrates?
Then you could be doing exactly what is most harmful to your health and helping to support one of the world's biggest and most lucrative industries - the healthcare industry.
Trick and Treat asks the key questions:
- has "healthy eating" coincided with a reduction in health problems and health spending?
- who benefits from the effects of "healthy eating"?
- what is the evidence to support the principles of "healthy eating"?
- if "healthy eating" isn't healthy, what is?
Bringing together over a century of relevant findings, including classic papers and the latest research. Barry Groves examines each of these issues in depth and concludes that there is a simple, evidence-based alternative approach that will allow us all to take charge of our own health.
