How the food industry is destroying our food supply -- and what we can do about it.
Do you know what you’re eating? Disaster looms in our current method of food production. The nutritional content of food is in shocking decline, but the number of noxious, often toxic contaminants in food is increasing. The End of Food exposes the cause of the crisis—an industrial system of food production geared not toward producing nourishing food, but maximum profit for corporations. Most of the hard scientific research on which the book is based was conducted outside the United States. U.S. food production lobbyists have fought hard against this kind of research. Pawlick does not simply sound the alarm bell, he advocates a rejection of the current system. His mission is to raise consumer awareness so that individuals will no longer buy foods that are produced for the highest profit instead of nutritional content.
