Thank you for this in-depth look at the manufactured food industry and it's affect on our bodies.
This is a well done piece of journalism that clearly shows what is happening behind the scenes with our food and encourages people to take their power of choice and use it. Recommended.
This was a real eye-opening book. Even companies that wanted to give us healthier options abandoned their efforts when we didn't buy them. They sell us what we want. The problem lies in what we say we want and what we, as consumers, actually purchase. We're making ourselves sick and fat. A must read/listen. Scott Brick was a wonderful narrator.
the ingredients to preserve, hide in wanted flavors, and keep you craving . is and will continue to be a health issue until one starts taking matters into their own hands,
From the beginning it held my interest explaining the history of snack foods and why they are purposfuly addictive. A fair assessment in the efforts of manufacturers attempt at healthier snacks vs profit. Very eye opening even to a health conscience person. I recommend to anyone who believes there is such thing as healthy chips.
This is an informative look at the food industry, and I listened to encourage myself to stick to my low carb diet. Unfortunately, listening did the opposite: I found myself craving many of the chemical-laden foods the book chronicles. While I only cheated on my diet once (with a tiny pack of Smarties, not a package of Double Stuffed Oreos), I need to warn others that the constant references to junk food made the listening experience an exercise in willpower.
Brick is a good narrator, but his style is better suited to fiction as opposed to non-fiction. I found his intonations a bit over-dramatic at times.
