Kelly Brownell is a well-respected researcher in the field of obesity and he writes here about how today’s “toxic” food environment—polluted by the actions of both government and the food industry—has contributed to the obesity epidemic. His writing style is friendly and the book is aimed at health activists, both professionals and consumers. He describes the problem--which seems overwhelming--and then suggests plans of action. Admittedly, these seem a little overwhelming, too. But this is an especially great book for parents—or anyone concerned about the health of children in their community—who want to turn local schools into advocates rather than enemies of children’s health.
