This book does a good job of laying out the facts and clarifying fallacies on a diverse number of disorders and diets. I like how short articles on health topics such as cholesterol, fats, childhood nutrition, irradiation, sleep and diets as well as medicine-food interactions are interdispersed throughout the alphabetical list (like a dictionary) of common ailments and diseases, eg lupus. However, including foods within that alphabetical arrangement could be confusing for some. I didn't mind it as it provided a logical way to organize all the content. Definitely worthwhile read for anyone interested in learning more about nutrition and health.
