How the Food Industry Undermines Our Health and How to Fight BackBook - 2006
Over the past two years, concerned Americans have finally begun to ask who is to blame for the growing public health crisis of obesity and diet-related illnesses? Is the junk food industry at fault, or is it all just a matter of personal and parental responsibility? How can we fight back with workable solutions? In communities all over the country, people are attempting to "take back" their food supply from greedy corporations. Public health attorney Simon describes food industry lobbying, front groups, and other tactics that operate to undermine nutrition policy in schools and elsewhere, and she explains how to counterattack. Additionally, she tells how to see through corporate promises; illustrates the importance of rhetoric to control the debate; informs how to respond; celebrates the unsung heroes in the fight; and provides resources on how to get involved.--From publisher description.
