The Vitamin Murders Who Killed Healthy Eating in Britain by James Fergusson

How can it be that the British ate better,nutritionally speaking,during the rationing years of WWII than they have since?And how did we get to the point today where each of us has at least 300 man-made chemicals sloshing around inside our bodies,in untested and potentially toxic combinations?To find out how our food came to make us fat rather than healthy,James Fergusson looks back to the scientist who devised the wartime diet and follows a murky trail of industrial espionage,unsolved murder,and commercial greed right into the plates we set before our families every day.

'An intriguing and thought provoking historical whodunit that investigates the sinister roots of our twenty first century toxic legacy.'Joanna Blythman
