Narsai David Book Review: Why Calories Count – From Science To Politics

Nutritionists Marion Nestle and Malden Nesheim cover a lot of ground very accessibly in Why Calories Count: From Science To Politics. They begin with a basic scientific definition of what a calorie really is before exploring the food industry’s influence on nutrition and how politics plays into food safety, including pet food.
