This book is based on hard scientific research, most of which has been conducted outside of the United States, where food production lobbies have fought hard against this kind of research. Pawlick exposes an alarming trend in the food available in our grocery stores. This is not an argument about unhealthy, processed foods, rather it exposes the problems with all foods, including fruits and vegetables that people commonly assume are healthy.

A disturbing, well-documented look at the worldwide trend toward corporate food that may look good on a store shelf but that lacks all the qualities that make eating both a physical necessity and a sensual experience. —Quill and Quire

Pawlick writes from a downright mainstream perspective . . . this is something hugely in its favour as his message about the food system will be heeded by more than the converted. —Vitality Magazine

(2006-06-01)

Pawlick is on a crusade to warn Canadians that the food industry has spent the last few decades engineering nutrition out of what ends up on the shelves of North America's supermarkets . . . Pawlick's book calls on consumers to turn to farmers' markets, backyard gardens and other means to find food that hasn't been nutritionally degraded. —The Observer

(2007-03-23)

Corporate profits trump health and nutrition in our modern food system, according to award-winning journalist and part-time farmer Thomas Pawlick in his expose of the food crisis in Canada's food supply. Pawlick gives guidance on how we can reclaim control of what we eat by becoming active at the local level. —Granville Magazine
