Ever since I read a book entitled “The New Nuts Among the Berries” by Ronald M. Deutsch (1977), I have been interested in fad diets and nutrition quackery for decades and marvel at their persistent presence in our society, not to mention their creativity. Don’t miss the Swamp Diet in the following article. (Spoiler: move away from swamps). Warning: Fad diets can only lead to health problems and none are recommended. Very restrictive diets can be dangerous and should never be followed without medical supervision if at all.
