A fascinating read. Our health is at risk – from the food we eat. Original, stimulating mini essays about what is wrong with our food today, and about one of the greatest challenges of the new century: how to produce enough food without further damaging our health and our environment. This is pithy, yet intellectually credible, wry yet deadly serious.
There is room for optimism – but you need to read this engrossing little book first!
“This is a really big little book. It is a good read and it will make your hair stand on end. But Craig Sams is not a scare-monger. He knows his subject and his warnings about the food we eat are based on scrupulous evidence. Nor is he a merchant of doom. ”- Jonathan Dimbleby (President of the Soil Association)
“An incisive look beyond the dinner table”- Permaculture Magazine
“Tough, uncompromising and fascinating. Craig Sams knows his stuff. He lifts the lid on the food industry to reveal some extraordinary goings-on. Food is too important to be left to others to do the thinking for us.”- John Humphrys
“A wonderful little book about how to do good by eating well.”- Eric Schlosser (author of Fast Food Nation)
“Provocative and knowledgeable. Craig Sams is measured yet stimulating. If you are interested in food and what it does to you, this book is a great starting point.”- John Humphrys
Craig Sams is the Chairman of the Soil Association and is the founder of Whole Earth Foods and Green & Black's Organic Chocolate.
