Carbophobia! by Michael Greger
Book DescriptionMedical authorities have questioned the safety and efficacy of low-carb diet fads for the 100-plus years they've been in existence. The largest organization of nutrition professionals in the world, for example, the American Dietetic Association, calls the Atkins Diet, the most famous of these diets, a nutritional "nightmare," and the American Medical Association has published an official scathing critique. How then has the multi-billion dollar Atkins Corporation managed to mislead millions of people onto their diet? In the first book of its kind, Dr. Michael Greger draws together decades of research exposing the dangerous truth behind the low-carb lies. Carbophobia decisively debunks the purported "science" behind the low-carb claims, documents just how ineffective the Atkins Diet and other low-carb plans have been in producing sustainable weight loss and lists the known hazards inherent to the diet. This is not a case of academic "he said/she said." It is a situation where there are too many companies with a financial stake in ignoring all the current evidence-based dietary recommendations no matter what the human cost.

What turned a harmless waterborne duck virus into a human mass murderer? This work traces the human role in the evolution of the Bird Flu virus, whose humble beginnings belie its transformation into a killer mutant strain that could become as ferocious as Ebola and as contagious as the common cold.
