For more than two years, the New York Timess science and
health columnist Anahad OConnor has tracked down the facts,
fictions, and occasional fuzziness of old wives tales,
conventional-wisdom cures, and other medical mysteries. Now
in this lively and fun book, he opens up his case files to
disclose the experts answers on everything, from which of
your bad habits you can indulge (yo-yo dieting does not mess
up your metabolism and sitting too close to the television
does not hurt your eyes) to what foods actually pack the
punch advertised (you can lay off the beet juice!). A
compendium of answers to the curious and nagging questions
of how to keep healthy, Never Shower in a Thunderstorm will
provide guidance and amusement to anyone who has ever
wondered if the mosquitoes really are attacking her more
than everyone else. (Yes, they are.)
