From the Publisher
Annotation Walter C. Willett of the Harvard Medical School takes issue with the traditional way of looking at what we should be eating. Scanning the history of the famous "food pyramid," he points out that it was devised not by nutritionists but by the Department of Agriculture, as a way of promoting American crops such as corn, wheat, and dairy products. Willett prefers a diet less carbohydrate-laden, with more concentration on vegetables, fruits, and "good" fats, and he also--quite sensibly--points out that, no matter how ideal one's diet, exercise is a vital component of good health.
Editors Note The Harvard Medical School and the School of Public Health present a revolutionary new approach to a lifetime of healthy eating, introducing the revised USDA Food Pyramid, the difficulties with conventional nutritional wisdom, foods with hidden dangers, and key foods that help prevent cancer, heart disease, and other ailments.
