    Good Calories, Bad Calories
    by Gary Taubes

    Fat Politics: The Real Story behind America’s Obesity Epidemic
    by J. Eric Oliver
    The obesity “epidemic” has been wildly exaggerated so government agencies like the CDC can justify their budgets. Dr. Oliver explains how contempt for fat people is based on our Puritan heritage, and just how weak the link is between being “overweight” as defined by the government and being unhealthy. The behaviors that make you fat can also make you unhealthy, but being fat is not, in and of itself, a threat to your health.

    The Great Cholesterol Con
    by Dr. Malcolm Kendrick
    A British physician shreds the cholesterol theory and - I kid you not - manages to be laugh-out-loud funny while doing it. Lord help anyone who ever has to debate this man. He would not only win the argument, he would have the audience laughing at his opponent.

    Oh hey - Another interesting book with a fair number of cites is "The Unhealthy Truth" by Robyn O'brien. She focuses more on children and allergies, but there's a lot of good stuff in there (and it's a gripping read).
