The End of Food: How the Food Industry Is Destroying Our Food Supply and What You Can Do About It
"Disaster looms in our current method of food production. The vitamin, mineral, and nutritional content of food is in shocking decline, a decline that is coupled with an equally shocking increase in the most noxious, often outright toxic contaminants in our food. Based on hard scientific research, The End of Food exposes the cause of this crisis -- and industrial system of food production geared not to producing nourishing food, but to producing minimum profit for corporations.
Pawlick does not simply sound the alarm bell -- he advocates a rejection of the current food production system. His mission is to raise consumer awareness so that individuals will no longer buy foods that are produced for the highest profit rather than for nutritional content.
""Pawlick is on a crusade to warn Canadians that the food industry has spent the last few decades engineering nutrition out of what ends up on the shelves of North America's supermarkets...Pawlick's book calls on consumers to turn to farmers' markets, backyard gardens and other means to find food that hasn't been nutritionally degraded."" -- The Observer
.".".a disturbing, well-documented look at the worldwide trend toward corporate food that may look good on a store shelf but that lacks all the qualities that make eating both a physical necessity and a sensual experience."" -- Quill & Quire"
