This book uniquely empowers readers to benefit from what’s fundamentally and reliably true – while setting us all free from fads, false claims, and distractions. Dr. Katz shows us how to differentiate truth from the exploitative “lies” that abound. Based on science, informed by uncommon sense, and aligned with the global consensus of diverse experts, The Truth about Food is an invitation to add years to your life and life to your years; to love the food that loves you back for a lifetime; and to enjoy the comforting confidence that only comes from genuine understanding.
“You’ve got a terrific book in front of you, written by a doctor who is woke, devoted, caring, and deeply concerned not only about what and how we eat but the impact it has on ourselves, our environment, other living beings, and the planet in general. This is a big book, addressing some of the most important topics of our time, and Dr. David Katz is the ideal person to put it together.” – From the Foreword by Mark Bittman
“The truth about food is simple, while the lies about food are complicated. And, with that statement, Dr. David Katz helps insulate us from the next food fad by making sure we are armed with the truth, and nothing but the truth. It is an audacious undertaking and Dr. Katz, who has dedicated his professional life to this, is perhaps the perfect person to be educating all of us. Facts do matter, and The Truth About Food is full of them. The Truth about Food should have a home in everyone’s kitchen.” – Sanjay Gupta MD; Staff Neurosurgeon, The Emory Clinic; Chief Medical Correspondent, CNN
“This book, unlike any other, takes readers deeply into the challenges of separating truth about foods from the overwhelming amounts of misinformation, purposeful lies, and deception that engulf Americans today. Everyone will learn something from Dr. Katz’s lively discussions and insights and will be better prepared to interpret tomorrow’s sensational headlines.” – Walter Willett, MD, DrPH; Professor, Epidemiology and Nutrition, Harvard T.H.
