From the Publisher:
An accessible and balanced account, Food Politics laid the groundwork for today's food revolution and changed the way we respond to food industry marketing practices. Now, a new introduction and concluding chapter bring us up to date on the key events in that movement. This pathbreaking, prize-winning book helps us understand more clearly than ever before what we eat and why.
Marion Nestle writes passionately about the negative effects the food industry has had on the health of consumers. She contends that the rise in obesity in America is the direct result of the $33 billion a year spent by the industry for marketing--in other words, getting people to eat more. She also claims that many food-industry "experts"--scientists, dietitians, nutritionists, and universities, not to mention the government--have been bought off by food companies.
