About this book

Please note: not to be confused with the 2010 book by Mark Battersby by the same title.

Eat this and live to be a hundred. Don't, and you'll die next month. Today, hyperbole dominates the media, which makes separating science from fiction an arduous task when deciding what to eat, what chemicals to avoid and what's best for the environment. In Is That a Fact?, bestselling author Dr Joe Schwarcz carefully navigates through the storm of misinformation to help us separate fact from folly and shrewdness from foolishness.
