Summary
"'Something to Chew On' is an informative and entertaining book which covers from a scientific point of view all of the worldwide controversies dominating the popular press in relation to the safety and wholesomeness of the modern food chain. It deals with the topics of organic food, GM foods, obesity, growing old, the integrity of food research, global warming, global malnutrition, consumer perception of food-bourne risk, our gut bacteria, and how nutrition during pregnancy primes us for health in later life. Each chapter presens multiple arguments and comes to a well-supported conclusion. Mike Gibney provides interesting examples, reports and stories from many countries."
