About this product
- DescriptionThe Industrial Diet chronicles the long-term transformation of food from a natural resource into an edible commodity that far too often fails to urish us. Anthony Winson reveals how a combination of techlogical changes, population growth, and political and ecomic factors helped constitute and transform mass dietary regimes from the nineteenth century to the present day, and he offers new evidence linking broad-based dietary changes with negative health effects. With its focus on the degradation of food and the emergent struggle for healthful eating, this book encourages us to reflect on the state of our food environments and to create realistic and invative strategies that can lead to a healthier future.
