I have to be in the mood to read such books because they frustrate me, but I do want to educate myself about the quality of nutrition and affects manufactured foods have on our bodies.

While some of it might be a little off the mark, most of this book makes a lot of sense. There are a number of writers pointing out at the moment that our food nowadays isn't as nutritious as it was a century ago, or even 20 years ago. Intensive farming and a dependence on chemical assistance is doing damage to the land and it's the land that's important.

This is an interesting pointer at some of the ways big business has harmed what should be a process they assist not control. ( )
