HOOKED Food, Free Will, and How the Food Giants Exploit Our Addictions

by | Read by Scott Brick

Contemporary Culture • 9 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

The journalistic quality of Scott Brick's narration is perfectly suited to this eye-opening investigation of the food industry and how it gets us hooked on poor-quality foods. This exploration of the science behind our desire for certain foods reveals why they can be more addictive than drugs and cigarettes, and how our chemical responses to food are exploited by the companies that make them. Brick's perfectly modulated delivery hones in on misleading advertising and confusing nutritional information, both of which are used by the industry to remove its accountability for the poor nutritional habits of many people around the globe. After Brick's persuasive performance, you may rethink just who is in charge the next time you choose a bag of chips. M.F. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2021]
