19. Travelling home reading this....Nutrition for Dummies by Nigel Denby, Sue Baic and Carol Ann Rinzler
I was not a big biology fan in school, I much preferred my English and History classes but the more I try to live a healthy life the more I find myself bamboozled by the diet industry gumpf. I want to have a better grasp on the human digestive system and how and why food is used in our bodies. This book, so far, has been an excellent start, it is clear, concise and doesn't overwhelm with numbers. I love the image of intestinal villus as little fingers absorbing the nutrients from food and moving it down the line.
