    Every year, the average American eats 33 pounds of cheese (triple what we ate in 1970) and 70 pounds of sugar (about 22 teaspoons a day). We ingest 8,500 milligrams of salt a day, double the recommended amount, and almost none of that comes from the shakers on our table. It comes from processed food. It’s no wonder, then, that one in three adults, and one in five kids, is clinically obese.

    Michael says: "This is all too real, and YOU are the victim."

    Story

    Yes, we all know processed food is bad for us but eat it anyway. What we don't know is what is in that food and the extent of consumer manipulation by the food industry. The government has played a role in this as well, but they are now turning around and complaining about the high obesity rate when they are part of the problem. My favorite chapter was the one on cheese. In a sentence from the book - "cheese went from being a food to being an ingredient". How true. There many enlightening facts which I cannot quote since I listened to the book but I believe it was something along the lines of a cup of Ragu having as much sugar as 4 Oreos. That tends to make you aware. A very enlightening book.
