Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An unprecedented and impeccably reported look at how American food manufacturers and their "products" may be endangering our minds.

With obesity becoming one of the fastest-growing worldwide epidemics, and manufactured food fueling that trend, The Crazy Makers is timelier than ever. This updated edition includes a new chapter on autism, as well as revised material that illustrates just how much the industry has changed in a few short years.

Based on extensive research, epidemiological evidence, and a formal study of schoolchildren's eating habits, The Crazy Makers identifies how the latest food products may be literally driving us crazy. Carol Simontacchi offers the reader nutritional primers and recipes to help counteract the problems facing us and our children every time we sit down to eat.

Synopsis:

An unprecedented and impeccably reported look at how American food manufacturers and their "products" may be endangering our minds.

In The Crazy Makers, nutritionist Carol Simontacchi reveals that brand-name consumer food producers may be putting items on the market that redefine what we commonly think of as "food." From infant formulas to supposedly health-conscious packaged meals, these pseudo-foods may be causing chemical levels in the brain to rise to alarming heights.

Based on new research, epidemiological evidence, and a formal study of schoolchildren's eating habits conducted by Simontacchi, The Crazy Makers will open your eyes as it identifies how the latest food products may be driving you crazy-and will tell you what you can do about it. Notes. Index.

Synopsis:

This is a look at how American food manufacturers and their "products" may be endangering children by sabotaging their brains. "The Crazy Makers" is an indictment of American food processors and what they are serving the nation. Nutritionist Simontacchi shows how the pseudo-foods being promoted today are, in fact, physically eroding peoples brains.

That most Americans, especially children, are over-fed but mal-nourished was not news to me, but for folks who assume that healthy food comes in General Mills or Nestle packages or who think that the government is watching out for our children's health, this is a must-read.
I was impressed with the research she provided to support her thesis that it's not just a question of mal- or under-nourishment, but of actually being both physically and mentally poisoned and harmed by this rush to efficiency, convenience, and profits for the "food" processors.

This is a facinating look at the food American children eat and what is -- and is not -- in that food. Every parent needs to read this book to help their child make wise food choices including having enough nutrients.
