Publisher's Summary

What's causing our current high food prices? Is organic food really better for us? Do we care about Fairtrade or food miles? Should we buy locally or from the supermarket? Eating has been described as the "most political act we do on a daily basis", with our choices affecting our health, landscape, climate, and economy. Food: What Are We Really Eating? lifts the lid on food production and the dizzying array of food choices we face each time we shop.


What the Critics Say

"Exactly what any busy person needs - the facts at your fingertips! Never get caught out again when a conversation starts on the big issues of our time." (BBC Radio 2)
"For everyone who longs to be well informed but lacks the time (or attention span)." (The Observer)

Concise but also very informative.

I found this title nice and short but extremely informative at the same time. If you are interested in where our food industry stands today you will not be disappointed with this download. There are a few different narrators and they are all very good. Overall this a very educational and eye opening title.
