Why Calories Count, written by Marion Nestle and Malden Nesheim, is one you should have on your bookshelf. Whether you are concerned about your own health or the global epidemic of obesity, this sciency book is a meaty one to own and to read.
It’s also the ONLY one of the 81 books I reviewed at our local library recently that mentioned things like ‘oxygen consumption’, ‘oxidation’ and ‘oxygen uptake experiment’ in the index.
Remember this metabolism FACT of life: Food + Oxygen=…

I recently visited our local library to review indices of diet books. I was looking for the word “oxygen” in each index.

When I open any book about diet, wellness, autism, healthy lifestyles, aging, disease, I go to the Index and look for the word Oxygen. 9 times out of 10, the word isn’t even in there and when it does appear, the number of pages is limited to one, two or three.
A recent example is a classic running book I’ve reviewed. The Complete Book of Running, by Jim Fixx. There are 14 mentions of ‘oxygen’ in the 306-page book, but not one description of how inhaling oxygen creates energy!
