"Finally, a commonsense, science-based book on nutrition that you can trust!" -- Susan Love, author of Dr. Susan Love's Breast Book and Dr. Susan Love's Hormone Book "Eat, Drink, and Be Healthy is the best book on nutrition for the general public I have read to date. Dr. Willett is not afraid...to criticize some sacred cows -- including the USDA's food pyramid. I urge you to buy this book and read it for yourself; it will be well worth your time." -- Timothy Johnson, M.D., M.P.H., medical editor, ABC News
