Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0465015603, Paperback)This guide explains how to use (and when to ignore) information on confusing and sometimes contradictory advice on everything from AIDS to food additives. With chapters on heterosexual transmission of HIV, exercise, weight control, nutrition, smoking and cancer, this book explains how to cope with the flood of "how-to" books and articles in order to make rational health decisions. It offers a broad framework for understanding claims and counterclaims, and gives the reader a way of assessing risks, and deciding what is "dangerous" and what is not. Harris helps the reader understand the relative importance of lifestyle, genetics and luck.
