Hype : a doctor’s guide to medical myths, exaggerated claims and bad advice – how to tell what’s real and what’s not / Shapiro, Nina L.
“There is a lot of misinformation thrown around these days, especially online. Headlines tell us to do this, not that–all in the name of living longer, better, thinner, younger. In Hype, Dr. Nina Shapiro distinguishes between the falsehoods and the evidence-backed truth. This book is as much for single individuals in the prime of their lives as it is for parents with young children and the elderly.” (Catalogue)

Brain food : how to eat smart and sharpen your mind / Mosconi, Lisa
“We are what we eat’ is an age-old adage. But while we often talk about diets affecting our fitness, we don’t talk about how what we eat and drink affects the health of the hungriest organ in the body – our brain. Innovative and timely, and with accompanying recipes and guides to show each of us how we can most effectively change our diets, Brain Food demonstrates how being smart about our diet can make us smarter overall.” (Catalogue)
What am I supposed to eat? : making sense of food confusion / Weaver, Libby
“For so many people today, food is complicated. They’re told to make `healthy’ choices yet this could include anything from an apple to a packet of sugar-free biscuits. They have lost touch with how much to eat, how often and how their food choices are impacting on their health – and then there are those all-consuming moments when they feel like no amount of food could satisfy their hungry hearts. This book is a fork in the road when it comes to better understanding your food, your body, your appetite and what you are supposed to eat.” (Catalogue)
