About the book

Can blueberries really make you more intelligent?
Is it worth drinking eight glasses of water a day?
Is there a food kids can eat to help them get better marks at school?

With incredible proof and sometimes shocking evidence of how food affects the inner workings of your body, from your immune system and appetite to your memory and even your libido, The Truth about Food, will put unfounded beliefs to the test, identifying once and for all which are simply myth and which foods can be scientifically proven to help us change our lives for the better. 

Created by the stunning BBC Science Unit, The Truth About Food is a tie-in to the six-part series of the same name which will be aired in New Zealand later this year.  Each episode will focus on a different aspect of how eating the right foods can change your life for the better:

How to be Slim
How to be Young and Beautiful
How to Feed the Kids
How to be Healthy
How to be Sexy
How to be the Best

Clear, concise and easy to use with full-colour photographs and fascinating illustrations,
The Truth About Food is a must-have for anyone who cares about what they put in their mouth
