SALT SUGAR FAT How the Food Giants Hooked Us

by | Read by Scott Brick

Contemporary Culture • 14.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2013

The author investigates the surreptitious, drug-like effects of salt, sugar, and fat in our diet and how major food companies manipulate these effects to boost their profits. Scott Brick keeps the narrative entertaining and intriguing. His full-bodied voice and expert pacing prevent the research and statistics from becoming dry. Further, he helps listeners navigate the controversial points regarding the policies of government and private entities that put the health of their organizations ahead of public health. As the fascinating links between food items, societal changes, dietary habits, marketing, and medical problems are revealed, Brick ensures that the relationships between these trends stay clear. He also provides moments of liveliness, such as when he impersonates Tony the Tiger’s iconic slogan: “They're GR-R-R-R-R-R-REAT!” M.F. © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2013]
