Food industry and drug companies exposed,
This review is from: Trick and Treat: How Healthy Eating is Making Us Ill (Paperback)
Barry Groves' "Trick and Treat" through acute observation,analysis and a breadth of research exposes the myths and dangers of conventional wisdom, or usually misinformation, in the frightening world of food and medicine.
Although it is a thorough analysis the book is not dull. It shows how doctors, politicians and ultimately we the consumers have been systematically tricked to serve the greed of multinational companies. We have been hoodwinked into bad eating sold as good and given expensive and harmful medicine which will often lead to lifetime addiction and/or irreparable damage. Thus the ever growing profits of the industries are guaranteed.
It should be compulsory reading for doctors who have practiced for more than five years and for all those with political and other decision making status in our health service.
After reading it I have felt compelled to buy copies for friends and family.
