The top contradicting nutrition information is mythbusted in #1 national bestseller Food Sanity: How to Eat in a World of Fads and Fiction (Turner Publishing) by Dr. David Friedman (as seen on ABC, CBS, NBC, E!, Discovery Health, FOX, FitTV, The Food Network, Discovery Channel and more), including:Food Sanity* Meats vs. beets – Dr. Friedman weighs the paleo and vegetarian diets’ pros and cons and reveals forensic fossil evidence divulging what exactly our ancestors really ate.

* Pigs don’t sweat – because of their toxic outer fat layer, if a pig is bitten by a rattlesnake, the snake is more likely to die than the pig! If you’re a pork eater, Dr. Friedman discusses how to shop for portions that are furthest away from the outer fat layer.

* The mercury fish farce- Health experts say to limit fish consumption because many varieties contain dangerous levels of mercury, a neurotoxin. Dr. Friedman reveals shocking evidence that naturally derived mercury found in fish is not a health concern and explores cultures that eat fish three times per day whose blood tests show no mercury toxicity. Even pregnant females and their newborn children are not at risk from eating fish!

* Seeing “all natural”, “hormone-free” and “organic” on the label isn’t synonymous with healthy. Dr. Friedman explains how to read labels for accuracy. Also, how do we buy safe and healthy fish, chicken, pork and eggs?

* Does your product contain GMOs? The 5- digit numbers on the stickers you find on produce indicate how the product was grown. If it begins with an 8 that means it’s a genetically modified food.

* Weight Loss – We have more weight loss plans than any time in history yet the obesity epidemic is getting worse.  From Atkins, Paleo, Zone, Keto, Nutrisystem and Weight Watchers, Dr. Friedman discusses the two crucial missing elements to achieving permanent weight loss.

* Healthy alternatives to cow’s milk – drinking cow’s milk is linked to osteoporosis, diabetes and obesity and is not a good source of calcium or protein. Almond milk contains more calcium and protein than cow’s milk.

* ABCs of choosing the safest and healthiest dietary supplements – many vitamins and mineral supplements are created from the same toxic chemicals used to make nail polish, laundry detergent, paint, gasoline and other industrial products. No wonder current research has shown Vitamin A causes lung cancer, Vitamin D causes DNA damage and Vitamin E increases a person’s risk of stroke.
