Book Title and Author Byline


The Lure and the Lies of Processed Food, Nutrition, and Modern Medicine

Product Description and Author Information

About the Book

An urgent manifesto on the ruinous impact that processed food has had on our health and on our environment over the past 50 years, proving that the only hope for unwinding this slow-motion catastrophe is to get back to real food now. Lustig takes on the interconnected issues of medicine, nutrition, health/disease, and society, connecting the dots and deciphering scientific data and concepts behind his arguments, among them: that Big Food, Big Medicine, Big Pharma, and Big Government are a dangerous alliance and that the key to health is to “protect the liver, feed the gut.”
