"This reference guide for general readers, students and scholars of food and nutrition studies concentrates on 16 controversies that range from the relationship between food inspection standards and food poisoning outbreaks to reaching a consensus about healthy diets. Myrna Goldstein, an author who specializes in health issues, has teamed with Mark Goldstein (Chief, Division of Adolescent and Young Adult Medicine, Massachusetts General Hospital) to investigate all viewpoints for such nutrition-related topics as the value of antioxidants, the dangers of fast food, food labeling and the effectiveness of many popular diets. Each chapter includes a conclusion from the authors, topics for further discussion and extensive reference and resources."
