Overview

The ultimate health-defense guide for eating wisely and safely

Contaminated beef, orange juice carrying salmonella, genetically engineered food, unidentified product additives—do you really know what's in the food you eat? Millions of Americans today are totally unaware of how many of the foods they rely on cannot be trusted—and that they may be unwittingly undermining their health at every meal.

Dr. Earl Mindell's Unsafe at Any Meal, a bestseller in its previous edition, is the ultimate self-defense guide for navigating the minefield of hidden hazards in the foods we eat, the meals we serve, the water we drink, and the medicines we take. One of America's leading nutrition experts, Dr. Earl Mindell exposes the food industry's chemical cover-ups and provides crucial information on what to look out for when shopping, cooking, and taking medications.

This essential guide gives you the lowdown on:

  • The truth about "labelese," the deceptive but legal liberties manufacturers take when listing ingredients
  • Pros and cons of new products such as cholesterol-lowering margarine and natural food fortified with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants
  • Genetically modified foods and definitions of biotech terms
  • Functional foods that provide health benefits above and beyond their nutritional value and much more

Equipped with Dr. Earl Mindell's Unsafe at Any Meal, you'll learn how to make the right food choices to help you and your family lead longer, healthier, and happier lives.
