The media is full of advice about what foods to eat and what to avoid. Unfortunately, the advice is constantly changing and often contradictory. For instance, what is gluten, and is it really so terrible? Are genetically modified foods the solution to world hunger or a threat to human heath? What about fats--good, bad, or a bit of both? These questions and more are addressed in Know Your Food. This 13-volume set explains the real story about what's on your plate.
