Format: Paperback
This book really lifts the lid on what processed junk our modern day food is. It blows the covers off false food claims manufacturers make to sell their products, and tells you low fat needn't be reduced calorie or even healthy. A must for all those who wish to make wise food choices for therselves and their family.

A fascinating read stuffed with facts that distrub deeply. 23 July 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Sue Dibb has drawn together a huge number of facts, figures, and organisational contacts in an analysis that will make you think twice next time you pick something up in the supermarket. She has revealed that there are more holes than substance in the laws protecting consumers. I found myself reading at every opportunity.
