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

Louise Stephen is a former corporate strategy consultant for KMPG then PWC. After overcoming crippling health problems, Louise enjoys life in Melbourne with new vitality, passionately investigating modern food and health practices and their pitfalls. She lives with her husband and son.

    This book can be a little hard to follow but if you read on the author tries to explain things as easily as she can in layman's terms . It is a book that will make you rethink the food that you put into your body and makes you really think about why our society has become so sick in the last 50 years.
