Book Details The Food Industry’s Role In Burgeoning Obesity Epidemic

March 22, 2013: 12:00 AM EST
Food companies have long been aware of people’s ingrained hankering for salt, sugar and fat, and have long profited from their awareness. Many of their unhealthiest products are crafted to appeal to those hankerings, and they are marketed – often to the most vulnerable audiences like children and the poor – without concern for their harmful effects, according to investigative report Michael Moss. His book “Salt Sugar Fat” describes the food industry’s deliberate development and marketing of “craveable” foods loaded with fat and sugar. “If you had any doubt as to the food industry’s complicity in our obesity epidemic,” says Washington Post reviewer Hannah Wallace, “it will evaporate when you read this book.”
