Why we chose this book

I think it's important to challenge and stretch our views of health, disease prevention, and nutrition intervention. As nutrition professionals, we should be able to look at new ways of thinking and keep open minds as evidence-based research evolves over the years after a book's or research publication. Most dietitians have given very high ratings to this course, but others feel the authors drew some conclusions that were weak. This book and its authors have been very popular on the media and the public is interested in its concepts--two good reasons to know what it says.
