Just a Little More About Starch and The Starch Solution
My new publisher, Rodale Inc., with a target date of April 2012, is making great progress on my new book, The Starch Solution. The initial manuscript has been sent to their editors.
People continue to ask me the same questions: Why do you use the highly inflammatory word “starch”? Why, especially, in the title of your new book? No one will buy it. Starch is for laundry. Starch is white glop. Starch makes you fat.
My answer: What better way to poke a sharp stick in the reader’s eye than with the word “starch”? I want to get people’s attention and force a reaction. More importantly: “Starch” is the correct scientific term for the foods people need to eat.
