Nearly new, wrapper sl. creased at top of spine. Foreword by David Bellamy. Written by an emeritus professor of food science at King's College, University of London and a professor of nutrition and dietetics at the University of Central Lancashire, this book follows the traditional format of 'Oxford books of...' and its design closely resembles that of the latest edition of the Oxford Book of Food Plants which shares one of its two authors with the present work. Includes Horsetail, which some think to be distinctly dodgy on account of its high silica content. Perhaps, in view of its nicotine content, it would be safer to smoke it? An up-to-date book that debunks some of the wilder claims of nutripharmacy. xxxiii, 188 pages.
