Food and nutrition is a confusing global issue. But author Barbara A. Quinn, registered dietitian and certified diabetes educator, knows the importance of understanding the technology behind sustaining the world food supply as well as how food affects health.

In her new book, “Quinn-Essential Nutrition: The Uncomplicated Science of Eating” (published by WestBow Press), Quinn offers readers the same kind of no-nonsense advice they have come to expect from her popular nutrition column in the Monterey County (California) Herald, “Quinn On Nutrition.” She explains the most current research on more than 100 nutrition topics, using stories and familiar circumstances to help readers decipher confusing information about diets and eating.

“In our online world, people are more confused than ever about how our food affects our health,” Quinn says. “They are looking for answers and don’t know who to believe. Readers of my column have come to rely on me to give them the facts based on valid research and let them make their own decisions.”

Mixing humor with common sense and clinical expertise, Quinn offers clear, plain English answers to confusing or controversial questions such as: What is normal eating? What’s not true about weight-loss products? And, is sugar addictive? Instead of lectures and doomsday predictions, Quinn nourishes her readers with solid research flavored with humor from real life experiences.
