Diet for a Dead Planet: How the Food Industry Is Killing Us

by Christopher D. Cook - £15.99  The New Press (2006)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781595580849 | ISBN 10: 1595580840

If we are what we eat, then we are not in good shape - as Christopher D. Cook contends in this powerful investigation of the food industry.
 
Diet for a Dead Planet takes us beyond fast food and GMOs to show how our entire food system is in crisis. Corporate control of farms and supermarkets, unsustainable drives to increase agribusiness productivity and profits, misplaced subsidies for exports, and anemic regulation have all combined to produce a grim harvest. Food, our most basic necessity, has become a force behind a staggering array of social, economic, and environmental epidemics.
 
Yet there is another way. Cook argues cogently for a whole new approach to what we eat - one that places healthy, sustainably produced food at the top of the menu for change.

"A powerful and provocative indictment of the food industry. If you eat, read this important book!"
(Jim Hightower)
