Summary
  • Studies the connections between food, history, politics, and health and discusses how the latest kinds of bioengineered food is affecting Americans' health
  • "Bitter Harvest is filled with cautionary facts and statistics that every consumer should know, such as: nearly 80% of commercially processed chicken is infected with salmonella; within ten years, nearly 95% of the food on the grocery store shelves may be consumed within twenty minutes of getting it home; research bears out that 40% of cancer cases are diet related and 80% could be prevented through healthy diet and exercise." "Throughout, Cooper argues that we must begin to change everything from the way food is shipped to the basic components of our diets and offers a comprehensive analysis of the issue of sustainability. In Bitter Harvest, this knowledgeable chef emerges as a political voice to be reckoned with, and her manifesto is a must-read for anyone concerned with health, nutrition, and the future of our food."--BOOK JACKET
