Harvard's Guide to Healthy Eating

Not your grandmother's food pyramid.

According to the smart people at Harvard, the rules of healthy eating have changed. Eating a “balanced diet” is no longer the most important goal. Instead, scientists have learned more specifically which foods can help prevent disease and which promote it. The Healthy Eating report describes how the latest research has resulted in a new healthy eating pyramid, a new concept of good fats and bad fats, and a greater understanding of the components of foods and how they influence health and longevity.

To read an excerpt from the report,

Choosing healthy foods goes beyond nutrition. One of the biggest challenges to healthy eating today is choosing foods that are safe as well as nutritious. Contamination from bacteria and other germs has become the biggest threat to food safety in recent years. Residues of toxic pesticides used in farming and shipping also pose risks to human health.
