I wrote this book to examine the human diet in its vast entirety, including the viewpoints of biology, culture, medicine, and history.
The book is currently a finalist for the 2016 Lane Anderson Award for Canadian science writing and the 2017 Taste Canada award for culinary narrative.
I was a finalist for the 2017 Kobo Emerging Writer Award.
“What you don’t understand about food and diet could fill a book. Biological anthropologist Stephen Le did just that, and what he has to say will almost certainly throw into question everything you think you know about healthy eating.” – Randy Shore, the Vancouver Sun
“Le’s argument – taken as a whole and based on the myriad studies he cites – could constitute a paradigm shift regarding how we view food… leaves me hungry for more of his work.” – Dilia Narduzzi, the Globe and Mail
