Former business analyst Louise Stephen contracted a flu in her early thirties, an illness that would lead to dialysis and then a kidney transplant. A once reasonably healthy, middle-class professional, Louise was perplexed as to how she could get so sick. She started investigating the world of food and medicine, applying her business mind and research skills to the task.

What Louise has uncovered will not only change the way you eat, but also the way you think about the people who make your flavoured milk, breakfast cereal and tomato sauce. Big Food is picking up where big tobacco left off, making multi-million dollar profits by selling us food that is destroying our health. Not only this, governments and peak health bodies, recipients of generous donations, are paving the way.

Part big idea, part exposé, Louise Stephen shines a light on the global forces behind our modern diet, and how we have been eating ourselves sick for the last 100 years.

About the Author
