Amy Alkon's Advice Goddess Radio: "Nerd Your Way To A Better Life!" with the best brains in science. *"Best Of" replay: How did so many of us get so fat and unhealthy? Well, it started when our government advised us to eat a high-carb, low-fat diet -- a diet that actually makes us fat and unhealthy. News reports distorting scientific findings and reporters unable to tell solid science from the shoddy kind are another problem — leaving most of us pretty confused about what we should be eating. Tonight, Denise Minger (of ?The China Study? debunking fame) changes that. She will lay out the disturbing history of the ruining of America's health. She'll explain simple ways the ordinary person can identify scientific distortions in the media. And she'll detail the nuances of science-based healthy eating (whether you're a vegetarian or a carnivore or something in between). Minger's meticulous (and very readable) book we'll be discussing is Death By Food Pyramid: How Shoddy Science, Sketchy Politics and Shady Special Interests Have Ruined Our Health.
