Synopsis

Globalization has affected what we eat in ways we are only beginning to understand. Modern food production no longer relates to our biological needs but is in direct conflict with them. The relationship between diet and our fertility, our risk of cancer, heart disease and mental illness is becoming clearer. Yet much of our food is nutritionally bankrupt.

In her revelatory new book, Felicity Lawrence travels from Lincolnshire to Brazil and to Senegal to investigate. She shows how new forms of colonization ensure the West retains economic control over the developing world; how slavery has re-emerged in food production; how millions are spent on marketing to persuade us from a very young age that we want foods we don’t need. Her book is essential reading for anyone who cares about their health and what they eat — or how the world is run today.
