Availability: Ready to download

Factory farming in the United States over the last half-century has evolved to do what large corporations do best: make their products available to the public at the lowest possible prices. But at what cost? As food allergies, asthma, diabetes, weakened immune systems, and a host of other disorders and illnesses reach epidemic proportions in American children, scientific e Factory farming in the United States over the last half-century has evolved to do what large corporations do best: make their products available to the public at the lowest possible prices. But at what cost? As food allergies, asthma, diabetes, weakened immune systems, and a host of other disorders and illnesses reach epidemic proportions in American children, scientific evidence increasingly points to the milk and meat that we consume. In this exposé of the U.S. agricultural and food industry complex, public health crusader Samuel Epstein, MD, elucidates the dangers inherent in the American production and consumption of chemical- and hormone-treated foods, and the political machinery behind it. Epstein indicts mega-corporations like Monsanto, Carville, and Hormel, as well as the Food and Drug Administration for its reckless disregard for public health concerns. From stimulating milk production through rBGH injections—the United States is the only developed nation where human consumption of milk from cows given an artificial growth hormone is legal—to confining large numbers of animals in small spaces, Epstein sheds light both on the common practices that endanger our health and on our government’s failure to protect us. His findings and insights make this a must-read for informed consumers.

    Another book on my quest to eat healthy. Pretty much sums up what they other books says except this one for some reason made me what to stop eating all together. Too much junk in our food and it is scary.
