This #1 New York Times bestseller will completely change the way you think about processed foods! On a spring day in 1999, a concerned Kraft executive led a secret meeting for the heads of the leading processed food companies in order to discuss how they were linked to the obesity epidemic in America. By the end of the meeting, not only had the majority decided to ignore the problem, they left with plans to use marketing strategies similar to those of tobacco companies to increase sales and desire for these foods. Investigative reporter and Pulitzer Prize-winner Michael Moss uncovers how this industry uses salt, sugar, and fat to addict us, increase their sales to $1 trillion a year, and cost the United States about $300 billion a year in related health expenses.
