About the Book
An entertaining and digestible volume that demystifies science, from the author of 16 bestselling popular science books. Crave answers? A Feast of Science demystifies the chemistry of everyday life, serving up practical knowledge to both inform and entertain. Guaranteed to satiate your hunger for palatable and relevant scientific information, Dr. Joe Schwarcz proves that ''chemical'' is not necessarily synonymous with ''toxic.'' Are there fish genes in tomatoes? Can snail-slime cream and bone broth really make your wrinkles disappear? What's the problem with sugar, resistant starch, hops in beer, microbeads, and ''secret'' cancer cures? Are ''natural'' products the key to good health? And what is ''fake news'' all about? Dr. Joe answers these questions and more. Cutting through the fat of story, suggestion, and social-media speculation, A Feast of Science gets to the meat of the chemical reactions that make up our daily lives.
