Catherine Price Vitamania

March 1, 201515 min
In VITAMANIA, Price takes us on an expedition through history and across continents to reveal the surprising story of how we came to believe that food could be medicine, nature could come in pills, and that anything natural must be safe—and how this way of thinking opened the door for a multi-billion dollar industry and a rotating cast of confusing dietary trends. In so doing, she both demolishes many of society’s most cherished myths about nutrition and challenges us to reevaluate our own beliefs.
