Written in a plain-speaking style, each book considers the terrible physical and mental consequences of eating unhealthy food and of drinking unwholesome beverages. The narratives are vividly descriptive yet scientifically oriented, discussing the target foods and beverages in physiological and cultural contexts. Many of the photographs of medical cases are uncensored, with the idea that the text is taking a scared-straight approach to the material and that readers deserve an honest, open message with all details revealed. This collection covers the impact that the respective food or beverage has on a person's body, mind, and emotions. Each volume also includes myths and facts about the food or beverage and a list of great questions to ask a nutritionist.
