This Is Healthy?

"A Man, A Can, A Plan - 50 Great Guy Meals Even You Can Make" by David Joachim and the Editors of Men's Health Rodale Press 43 pages $9.99

The premise of this book is a false one: men don't cook. And the book came out in 2002! not 1952 as one might have expected.

A further claim, "This food does everything from prevent heart disease and prostate cancer to boost your immune system and energy levels."

You be the judge.
