Just finished reading Walter C.

Just finished reading Walter C. Willett, Eat, Drink, and Be Healthy. Dr. Willett holds an endowed chair at the Harvard School of Public Health. He says the key idea of the Atkins low-carbohydrate diet is correct. White bread, white rice, pasta, and potatoes are not good for you, contrary to what the USDA says. And he claims that 80% of heart disease and 70% of some cancers--colon cancer, for example--are due to poor diet and lack of exercise. Very interesting, well-written book. And not counting the recipes, it's only 185 pages.
