Whether it's aspartame, high-fructose corn syrup, or gluten, Davis relies on only the best evidence to separate fact from half-truth and fiction...Davis includes a wealth of reliable references, and ends with 'Ten Tips for Deciphering Diet and Nutrition Claims,' a chapter worth the price of the book."
