"Nancy N. Chen helps us understand how ideas about food, health, and the body are entwined with and contingent upon prevailing notions of science and philosophical orientation." -- Amy Bentley, New York University "Nancy N. Chen makes the complex and often confusing nexus of food and health understandable. Her book blends millennia-old wisdom with today's best scientific knowledge. It is also a delicious read filled with savory nuggets of uncommon insight." -- Andrew Smith, editor of the Oxford Encyclopedia of Food and Drink in America
