Recommended for: People interested in politics and nutrition
Read in December, 2006

This book inspite of its extensive technical explanations offers a very interesting insight on:
a) lobbying and politics;
b) the nutrion agenda of corporations;
c) consumer deception.

You may be critical of the fact presentation and conclusions drawn from this book but nevertheless it explains how decisions are made and how important lobbying in Washington DC is in order to push a financial agenda.

It brings light into two very important things: Why are people obese (because they eat more then they should); why are companies sending out the message of eating healthy and that we should buy " smart foods" and how is that helping corporations make money.

The bottom line is very simple, stop eating to much food, you don't need it.
