Formatted Contents Note:
Processed food is bad for you, right? -- Plants are trying to kill you -- Microbes are trying to eat your food -- The smoking gun, or what certainty looks like -- Sunburnt to a crisp, or what less certainty looks like -- Is coffee the elixir of life or blood of the devil? -- Associations, or the grapes of math -- What's that public pool smell made of? -- You're late for a very important date -- So what do I do?
Summary, etc.:
"Cheese puffs. Coffee. Sunscreen. Vapes. George Zaidan reveals what will kill you, what won't, and why-explained with high-octane hilarity, hysterical hijinks, and other things that don't begin with the letter H. Ingredients offers the perspective of a chemist on the stuff we eat, drink, inhale, and smear on ourselves. Apart from the burning question of whether you should eat that Cheeto, Zaidan explores a range of topics"-- Provided by publisher.
