"In this fascinating book we learn how powerful, intrusive, influential, and invasive big industry is and how alert we must constantly be to prevent it from influencing not only our own personal nutritional choices, but those of our government agencies. Marion Nestle has presented us with a courageous and masterful expose."--Julia Child "This remarkable book is essential reading for anyone who wishes to understand how it has come to be that the richest nation in the world is eating itself to death. . .. Straight reporting about the shaping of food policy, as this volume makes clear, is certain to offend some very powerful players."--Joan Dye Gussow, author of "This Organic Life" "Food politics underlie all politics in the United States. There is no industry more important to Americans, more fundamentally linked to our well-being and the future well-being of our children. Nestle reveals how corporate control of the nation's food system limits our choices and threatens our health. If you eat, you should read this book."--Eric Schlosser, author of "Fast Food Nation " "'Blockbuster' is one of the best ways that I could describe this book. . .. A major contribution to understanding the interaction of politics and science, especially the science of nutrition, it is of extreme value to virtually all policy makers and to everyone concerned with the American diet."--Sheldon Margen, editor of the "Berkeley Wellness Letter " "A devastating analysis of how the naked self-interest of America's largest industry influences and compromises nutrition policy and government regulation of food safety. . . . A clear translation of often obscure studies and cases, the writing is accessible and lively."--Warren Belasco, author of "Appetite for Change "
