Summary
Moss, the investigative reporter behind the "pink slime" expose, traces the rise of the processed food industry over the last five decades. He describes how the addictive additives of salt, sugar, and fat have created a nation of "heavy users:" the companies' term for their most ardent customers. Moss also reveals the deliberate corporate practices--from chemical manipulation of the additives to marketing campaigns adapted from tobacco companies--that lie behind the U.S.'s current trends in obesity, diabetes, and other health challenges
