How Food Companies Skew The Science Of What We Eat

Unsavory Truth exposes the connections between scientists, government, pharmaceuticals and the food industry. It shows how the food industry influences research on nutrition in order to favour companies and how we all we all end up paying the price.

What Unsavory Truth does well is its disclosure of the mechanics of how the food and pharmaceutical industry lobbies the government to get controversial new products on the market. It also reveals tricks some companies use to get certain parts of a food research suppressed or lost in translation.

More importantly, the Marion Nestle reveals the false claims made about certain foods, the aim of which is to make the company more money.


This is a book for anyone concerned about what they put in their mouths. Those involved crafting health policies and well as health practitioners might benefit from reading it.
