A mouth-watering collection of enlightening essays on the science of what we eat and how we live, from bestselling author Dr. Joe Schwarcz

Do you know if your waiter sings in the bathroom? Or if the lady who whipped up the icing on your cake wore false fingernails? When was the last time you microwaved your dishcloth? Is your orange juice pasteurized? In Let Them Eat Flax!, award-winning author Dr. Joe Schwarcz explains why these are more important questions than whether you eat fresh or farmed salmon, whether genetically modified foods should be labeled, or whether fruits and vegetables harbor traces of pesticides. No matter what you’re craving, if you have an appetite for science, Dr. Joe has got you covered.
