"With a calculator in hand and a scientist's skepticism, Nestle shoots straight though food industry hype."
From the Publisher
First Line A visit to a large supermarket can be a daunting experience: so many aisles, so many brands and varieties, so many prices to keep track of and labels to read, so many choices to make. No wonder. To repeat: An astonishing 320,000 edible products are for sale in the United States, and any large supermarket might display as many as 40,000 of them.
Annotation A formidable foe of the food industry, widely respected nutritionist Marion Nestle has created both a handbook for wise supermarket shopping and a detailed profile of how America's food industry undermines the health of the country through junk food and marketing. Charging down the aisles, Nestle shares decisive information on hotly debated topics such as conventional versus organic fruits and vegetables, the safety of fish, and portion sizes. From the produce department to the dairy section and beyond, she provides mountains of information in a thoroughly readable format. Though 600 pages long, Nestle's ultimate advice is very simple: "Eat less, move more, eat lots of fruits and vegetables," and "go easy on junk foods."
