*** If Our Bodies Could Talk by James Hamblin

If Our Bodies Could Talk: A Guide to Operating and Maintaining a Human Body seems to be innocently structured as a series of questions and answers about our bodies (e.g. “How much sleep do I need?”) and indeed some question-answer pairs are perfectly short and sweet. But other questions are just setups for occasionally lengthy and usually passionate rants against fad diets,  supplements, energy drinks, and irrational fears of vaccines and cell phones. If you suspect that the food industry and the medical field may not have your best interests at heart, read this book, which is written by a physician turned journalist.
