California Studies in Food and Culture #3: Food Politics: How the Food Industry Influences Nutrition by Marion Nestle
California Studies in Food and Culture #3: Food Politics: How the Food Industry Influences Nutrition

The food industry spends billons on lobbing for their place on the food pyramid and our table. They also spend billions on marketing, as a result consumers spend billons at the check out counter. Marion Nestle has first hand knowledge of this food political game. She has opened my eyes to the food industries propaganda. I recommend this book, if you aren?t interested in the food aspect of it, read it just to learn the political aspect.
