Foods and Nutrition

In Overdrive: An Apple a Day by Joe Schwarcz (in Overdrive) Forget your dinner jacket and put on your lab coat: you have to be a nutritional scientist these days before you sit down to eat — which is why we need Dr. Joe Schwarcz, the expert who’s famous for connecting chemistry to everyday life. In An Apple a Day, he’s taken his thorough knowledge of food chemistry, applied it to today’s top food fears, trends and questions, and leavened it with his trademark lighthearted approach. The result is both an entertaining revelation of the miracles of science happening in our bodies every time we bite into a morsel of food, and a telling exploration of the myths, claims and misconceptions surrounding our obsession with diets, nutrition and weight.
