Popular Nutritional Practices: A Scientific Appraisal by Jack Z. Yetiv, M.D., Ph.D. (Popular Medicine Press, P.O. Box 12607, Toledo, Ohio 43606, $23.95 hardcover, $17.95 softcover, 318 pp.) Dr. Yetiv is a physician-researcher who is also a good communicator. He covers the most-talked-about--and controversial--nutritional topics, which are shrouded in mystery, have become fads or are just plain scientifically controversial. Anorexia nervosa, vegetarian diets, hypoglycemia, megavitamins, osteoporosis, cholesterol, the Pritikin diet, herbal remedies, weight-loss diets, megaminerals, food allergies, life extension, hair analysis and fish oil remedies are appraised with scholarly verve and plenty of bibliography to back up the verdict.
