This review is from: Food Wars: The Global Battle for Mouths, Minds and Markets: The Battle for Mouths, Minds and Markets (Paperback)
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?

5.0 out of 5 stars A terrific account, 14 Jun. 2005
By A Customer
This review is from: Food Wars: The Global Battle for Mouths, Minds and Markets: The Battle for Mouths, Minds and Markets (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.
