  • Salt Sugar Fat: How the Food Giants Hooked Us

    Story
    (916)

    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."
    "Killing us slowly with food"

    Have you listened to any of Scott Brick’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    If you could give Salt Sugar Fat a new subtitle, what would it be?

    The Cold hard truth about our food and the people who make it.


    Any additional comments?
