Nutrition in crisis. Almost every day a new study shows that you are at risk for diabetes or cardiovascular disease or all cause mortality brought on by a newly appreciated toxin which turns out to be something that you just had for lunch (excerpt from Chapter 16). Most of us no longer know what to eat or who to believe.
The World Turned Upside Down offers the perspective of a distinguished biochemist with a gift for making accessible the intricacies of biochemical pathways. At the same-time, the book is unsparing in criticism of the nutritional establishment, an establishment which it seems must inevitably be overthrown. Scientifically accurate and entertaining, this book paints a broad picture of the nutrition world: the beauty of the underlying biochemistry and the embarrassing failure of the medical establishment, the practical value in low-carbohydrate diets and what s wrong with the constant reports that normal foods represent a threat rather than a source of pleasure.
Feinman combines a unique perspective with the experienced eye of a scientist. He's had a front-row seat to developments in the field of carbohydrates and metabolism over the past decades, which has given him key insights into the latest research. -- Nina Teicholz "author of the best-selling The Big Fat Surprise"
