Ralph S. Paffenbarger, Jr., M.D., Dr.P.H., Professor of Epidemiology, Emeritus (Active), Stanford University School of MedicineTrue to the implications of its title, "Eat, Drink, and Be Healthy" provides comprehensive evidence of the links of proper nutrition to better health and extended longevity. Professor Walter C. Willett and his learned colleagues describe new scientific work on the cardiovascular benefits from n-3 fatty acids found in nuts and some oils; on the cancer-fighting substance lycopene, found in tomatoes; on the potential hazards of consuming too much calcium; and on the advisability of taking a standard multivitamin daily. Well written and well reasoned, this book identifies a total diet that affects satiety, meets the body's needs for energy and nutrients, and prevents or delays some specific chronic diseases. --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

Walter Willett is the most-cited author in the medical journal literature on nutrition, so he really knows what he is talking about. That said, the science of nutrition is progressing, and there is an updated 2017 edition of this book, so don't be duped by sellers into taking an old edition.

Highly RecommendedReviewed in the United Kingdom on 31 January 2019
This is an excellent book which explains the science behind eating healthily very clearly. It has some great advice about what to buy from your local supermarket and also a good selection of tasty recipes. It is well structured and easy to read. The author clearly knows his subject.

Not a 'diet' book, A thought provoking one.Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 27 November 2020
Great book. Has changed the way I think about food. It allows you to see what the right and wrong foods are and why. Lots of studies, some stuff i didn't read fully as it does go on a bit. But some very interesting things. Definitely made me not want to eat 'bad' food.
Eat Drink and Be HealthyReviewed in the United Kingdom on 29 August 2012
Firstly this book is not a 'light diet read' however worth persisting as the author challenges on the basis of research the thinking that led to the abolition of fat from the diet when it is a necessary part of balanced eating....saturated mechanically produced transfats ...no...olive oil,avocado yes.

A very useful initial guide.Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 5 September 2014
It's difficult to rate a publication on a subject with which you are a novice. However, it supplies a useful set of ideas and conclusions and that is always handy as a basis for further research.
