Summary
"Ban trans-fats? Outlaw Happy Meals? Tax Twinkies? What's next? Affirmative action for cows? A catastrophe is looming. Farmers are raping the land and torturing animals. Food is riddled with deadly pesticides, hormones and foreign DNA. Corporate farms are wallowing in government subsidies. Meat packers and fast food restaurants are exploiting workers and tainting the food supply. And Paula Deen has diabetes! Taking on the commandments and condescension of the likes of Michael Pollan, Alice Waters, and Mark Bittman, [Lusk] casts long overdue skepticism on fascist food snobbery, debunking the myths propagated by the food elite."--Jacket
