Dr. Earl Mindell's Unsafe at Any Meal: How to Avoid Hidden Toxins in Your Food.
This complete revision of Mindell's book on the same subject 15 years ago reflects many changes in the labeling of foods and general knowledge about food safety. But, as Mindell quickly points out, there are still more than 76 million cases of foodborne illness each year. More commonly, however, people suffer because they lack guidance in the nutritional value of the foods they eat. This book helps readers understand the jargon printed on food labels, the nature of additives, and the risks from and misconceptions about many foods including "health" foods. The authors attack food one meal at a time by pointing out, for example, the pros and cons of chocolate and eggs, the difficulty in finding a bread that actually provides nutrition, and the unappetizing contents of hot dogs.
