Be informed about the food you eat,
This review is from: Not On the Label: What Really Goes into the Food on Your Plate (Paperback)
A thought provoking and well researched book. I thought I had some idea about how supermarkets operate and how our food is produced, but I didn't know the half of it. Read this book (then lend it to everyone you know), ponder its contents for a while and I am sure you will change your shopping habits. Too many of us are shopping in supermarkets and giving them the power to dictate their own terms. It is clear that they do not have consumers or food producers interests at heart. This book has encouraged me to question where my food has come from, how it has been produced and whether or not I want to buy it.
I've gone right off chicken (only organic and free range from now on), I've eaten my last ready meal, I think I'm going to try baking my own bread, definately Fair Trade bananas and coffee from now on and I've just taken over an allotment to grow some of my own fruit and veg. Its time to start enjoying good locally produced and carefully reared/grown food again.
