i preferred this book to the What to Eat one. This topic (food politics) is a real speciality of the author's. She is very convincing that food processors are not our friends.

vested interests are everywhere. many professional organizations with dubious conflict of interest policies.

food processors can hamstring governments and make them mince their words; making their official recommendations less than optimal.

makes me appreciate the Worlds Healthiest Foods book even more!!!!!

who you going to trust!!
