About This Book

Renowned French journalist William Reymond presents some shocking -- and unappetizing -- facts about the American food industry. This European best-seller delves deep into the minds of twisted and corrupt manufacturers who produce "toxic" foods that cause obesity, cancer and other ills.

In 2001, a total of 2,752 people were victimized by 9/11. But about 145 times as many Americans -- more than 400 thousand -- suffered from obesity, a serious illness that indirectly affects the entire world population. In 2000, statistics showed that 10 times as many Americans died from being overweight than from car accidents. In 2006, the World Health Organization announced that more individuals are inflicted by obesity than malnourishment.

Scientific studies have shown that there are certain "toxic" elements in manufactured foods that impede brain functions and cause obesity. Thus becoming overweight is not a matter of quantity -- overeating -- but quality. For example, an average hamburger patty contains meat from about 12 to 40 different cows -- and it's excruciating to imagine under what conditions the beef is prepared.

In an age where people spend more time thinking about the latest jeans or iPod, this book is like a wake up call -- because you are what you eat. --Hyo-won Lee
