'An important book that should be read by everyone who cares about how the way food is produced affects our own health as well as that of the environment and our national economies.' - Marion Nestle, author of Food Politics, and Paulette Goddard Professor of Nutrition, Food Studies, and Public Health, New York University

Format: Paperback
This book will change the way you view your breakfast cereal for ever! Never again will you chew your morning banana without questioning whether your really should have poured sugary yoghurt all over it! Seriously, this is a very useful account of the major fault-lines in contemporary food and health thinking. The absurdities of the food supply chain are laid bare. Food wars proposes that two emerging paradigms are now competing for which is to replace the mid-20th century paradigm that argued that public health and well-being would automatically follow from increasing food production.

Even though this semi-academic book is ten years old now, it still has an important contribution to make. Are we all being duped by the supermarkets on the back of 'more choice'? And what are the environmental costs?
