How sad to finally realize that the common people have been duped into believing that the processed food is good for you and that the government, while trying to act the part of watchdog is culpable. Excellently written and very well researched. The parting words that we as consumers are ultimately responsible is well worth noting. It helps to be informed.
A sobering, thought-provoking deep dive into the tactics used by the processed food industry to enslave us to their unhealthy, disease-promoting products. This book is a must read for anyone who cares about their health and the health of the people around them.
I believe over 90% of readers will not get through 50% of this book
I made a point to listen to ALL of it, just information without any summaries and a lot of repeat with similar food items that should be kept in order and with more of the writers conclusions along the way
Way too long without a punch or two :)
This book was masterfully plotted the chapters are well organized and thought out, I'd buy anything this author writes because he's a master
I have the audio version and it works for me.
Realizing that the Big Food Giants actually hire Chemist to alter the Salt, Sugar & Fat level of contents for the exact amount that will cause us to be addicted to our favorite foods. Wow!

I put off listening for a while, afraid the content would deprive me of pleasures. Instead, it made me rethink on my own behalf.
I have severe food allergies, so I have already given up a lot of food ingredients. Salt, sugar and fats are still in my diet, though I have been making my own baked goods for about 7 years now.
I do eat a few pre-made foods, usually purchased at healthy food marts or ethnic markets. I don't eat at any chain eateries. Even then, this book helps me see where my choices might be better yet.
I'm very glad I listened to this.
