I used to think that the British selling Opium to China was one of the great crimes of history.
But this book shows that the processed food industry today is no less evil and their products are no less lethal.

Free trade and capitalism alone do not it seems produce moral behavior but quite the opposite.

The need for an educated public, legal constraints and government regulation has never been better argued.

Never have I read such an explosive non-fiction book. The book challenges all the beliefs that the processed food industry propagates and lays the blame appropriately at the doorstep of this industry when it comes to the battle against the three deadly components of gluttony - salt, sugar, and fat. The conclusion of the book, "They may have salt, sugar, and fat on their side, but we, ultimately, have the power to make choices. After all we decide what to buy." sums up the situation beautifully. And that decision will definitely be a better one after reading this well-researched book.

Salt sugar and fat are three big concerns in the health industry right now. Also those three ingredients that make a dish taste better. Food consumers love these three ingredients and still will continue to eat these food even if they knew they were bad for you. I believe that it is making consumers realize they need to eat ll these ingredients in moderation within their daily diets.

Product details 480 pages Random House - English 9781400069804 Reviews:
"Review" by , “A shocking, galvanizing manifesto against the corporations manipulating nutrition to fatten their bottom line — one of the most important books of the year.”
"Review" by , "A mouth-watering, gut-wrenching look at the food we hate to love."
"Review" by , “What happens when one of the country’s great investigative reporters infiltrates the most disastrous cartel of modern times: a processed food industry that’s making a fortune by slowly poisoning an unwitting population? You get this terrific, powerfully written book, jammed with startling disclosures, jaw-dropping confessions and, importantly, the charting of a path to a better, healthier future. This book should be read by anyone who tears a shiny wrapper and opens wide. That’s all of us.” Ron Suskind, Pulitzer Prize–winning author of Confidence Men: Wall Street, Washington, and the Education of a President
"Review" by , “In this meticulously researched book, Michael Moss tells the chilling story of how the food giants have seduced everyone in this country. He understands a vital and terrifying truth: that we are not just eating fast food when we succumb to the siren song of sugar, fat, and salt. We are fundamentally changing our lives — and the world around us.”
"Review" by , Salt Sugar Fat is a breathtaking feat of reporting. Michael Moss was able to get executives of the world’s largest food companies to admit that they have only one job — to maximize sales and profits — and to reveal how they deliberately entice customers by stuffing their products with salt, sugar, and fat. This is a truly important book, and anyone reading it will understand why food corporations cannot be trusted to value health over profits and why we all need to recognize and resist food marketing every time we grocery shop or vote.”
"Synopsis" by , From a Pulitzer Prize–winning investigative reporter at The New York Times comes the troubling story of the rise of the processed food industry and its use of three simple, inexpensive ingredients — salt, sugar, and fat — to addict a nation.
