We decided to document many of the current ideas about food and health, to consider
origins and value, and to indicate what scientific validity they may have. Food: Questions and
Answers is the result. Ultimately, our responses to the ideas discussed in this book are our
judgements' based on current information. As more information becomes available, we should
be prepared to change our views, attitudes and behaviour. It is the ability to live with
and to be as rational as we can, which is the underlying philosophy of our book.
