Salt Sugar Fat
- How the Food Giants Hooked Us
- By: Michael Moss
- Narrated by: Scott Brick
- Length: 14 hrs and 34 mins
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.
This is all too real, and YOU are the victim.

You'll never look at a box of cereal the same again.
The information in the book is either stuff you've heard about or stuff you know. What will surprise you is the lengths that big food goes to in order to secure their profits.
