In The Great American Food Fight you ll learn how the food industry is victimizing the U.S. Consumer and how you can protect yourself and your family.

In this groundbreaking book Dr. Baldasare makes the case that it s much more than poor personal choice that is making Americans fat, it s that far too many of our food choices are made for us, not by us.

This book covers dozens of topics that affect our daily diets, some of which include:

Intentionally misleading packaging Qualified and unqualified health claims Ecology and ethics labeling Plastic coding Detailed lists of additives, fats and pesticides

The appendix includes many useful charts, including:

Food colorings Sources of gluten Food additives Types of fats Pesticides used on our foods

This book is packed with practical information and written in a clear and understandable tone.

You ll want to keep The Great American Food Fight handy and refer to it regularly when making food decisions for your family!
