Jaw Dropping Book

When I read an article this morning about the carcinogens in French fries, potato chips etc etc, it reminded me of an absolutely amazing book I read called Salt Sugar Fat by Michael Moss. If you get a chance to read this book, you will discover how the food industry gives us deadly doses of salt while adjusting the sugar and fat contents of their foods to appeal to our biological cravings. That's right! They have chemists who know exactly what types of flavours will unconsciously lure us to food concoctions that are destructive to every cell in our bodies. This is scary stuff in the name of making more profits. This article gives more details as to the manipulation of our taste buds.
