The hidden route to a healthier Britain.
It's one of the best kept secrets of our time; a simple, natural solution to today's most pressing problems - high food prices, rising carbon emissions, ill health. The remedy is there for the taking. No breakthroughs are required, no "fad" diets. You won't have to throw away the car keys or give up real butter and juicy steaks. So who's keeping us all in the dark?
Award-winning author Graham Harvey investigates the world of food and farming and how global corporations have hijacked almost every aspect of the natural world around us. He shows how internationally-traded grains have been used to exacerbate climate change, obesity and sickness. By reclaiming our greatest natural asset we can put ourselves and the nation back on the road to health and prosperity.
This book will surprise you. You'll wonder how something so vital to Britain's well-being can have been kept hidden. But once you know you'll be in a position to act - to reclaim this stolen treasure. At a time of threat and uncertainty our country needs it as never before.
