He usually has two to three drinks a day. Somedays less. His family is after him to quit drinking. He is becoming depressed because of this nagging and because of the memory loss.

Eat To Save Your Life: Another Half-True Diet Book

I am hesitant to review diet books because they are so often a tangled mess of fact and fiction. Teasing out their truth from falsehood is about as exhausting as delousing a long-haired elementary school student. However after being approached by the authors’ PR agency with the promise of a…
