More than half of supermarket multi-buy promotions are for high-fat or high-sugar foods, despite the fact that health advice dictates that these should not make up more than seven percent of our diet. More than ten million children die every year and the underlying cause for most of these deaths is starvation. Twenty-seven million tons of fish are discarded as waste every year. So how is it that malnutrition is so widespread in the developing world, while obesity is rife in the developed world? What exactly is the nutritional value of junk food versus the health benefits of fresh fruit and vegetables? Do you know what really goes into the production of the food on your plate? Gathering information culled from some of the most authoritative sources around the world, The Little Book of Shocking Food Facts is jam-packed with truths you need to know about global food politics, fast food culture and healthy nutrition. This startling but visually stunning book will alter the way you think about food production and change your eating habits for the better. Extended footnotes provide full citations for all information sources, as well as easy-to-understand texts that explain the facts in detail.
