Book Club: Salt, Sugar, Fat

Recently, a “Fresh Air” episode featured Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Michael Moss, author of the book Salt Sugar Fat: How the Food Giants Hooked Us. His writings explore the methods food manufacturers employ to ensure strong sales—methods that may be fueling the obesity epidemic. Moss spoke with hundreds of food-industry experts in his research, many of whom were eager to share information and regretted the effects their companies’ profitability has had on the bottom lines of millions of eager consumers (“heavy users” is the term they use for their customers). Are you interested in reading this book? I am going to order it today and will give you my thoughts in future posts.
