The Dorito effect : the surprising new truth about food and flavor

Author: Mark Schatzker
Publisher: New York : Simon & Schuster, 2015
Edition/Format:   Print book : English : First Simon & Schuster hardcover edition
In The Dorito Effect, Mark Schatzker shows us how our approach to the nation's number one public health crisis has gotten it wrong. The epidemics of obesity, heart disease, and diabetes are not tied to the overabundance of fat or carbs or any other specific nutrient. Instead, we have been led astray by the growing divide between flavor--the tastes we crave--and the underlying nutrition"--Provided by publisher
