Food, Inc. by Peter Pringle
Food, Inc.

While the book is very educational and thorough, I found it a little dry and sometimes boring. however, this book was a great segue to other food books.

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

tamara, January 6, 2007

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.
