Eat Your Heart Out: Why the Food Business is Bad for the Planet and Your Health by Felicity Lawrence (Paperback) (9780141026015)

Explains how big business took control of what we eat - and why so few of us even noticed. This book uncovers some startling facts and stomach-churning figures of agribusiness. It is suitable for those who care about their health and our planet.


That livestock farming creates greater carbon emissions than all of global transport put together? That some salmon farmers dye their fish? That sugar could be as bad for you as tobacco? That you might have been better off eating butter rather than margarine all along? That industrial processing removes much of the nutritional value of the food it produces? That by changing our diets we could reduce cancers by a third? That corporations are shaping our bodies, our minds and the future of the planet? Eat Your Heart Out explains how big business took control of what we eat - and why so few of us even noticed. Crossing the globe in search of agribusiness's darkest secrets, Felicity Lawrence uncovers some startling facts and stomach-churning figures. Essential reading for anyone who cares about their health and our planet.
