Salt, Sugar, Fat

Salt, Sugar, Fat by Michael Moss _____________________________________________________________ Listen to the podcast now: . _____________________________________________________________ Book Summary: The explosive story of the rise of the processed food industry and its link to the emerging obesity epidemic. Michael Moss reveals how companies use salt, sugar, and fat to addict us and, more important, how we can fight back.

He unearths marketing campaigns designedmdash;in a technique adapted from tobacco companiesmdash;to redirect concerns about the health risks of their products: Dial back on one ingredient, pump up the other two, and tout the new line as ldquo;fat-freerdquo; or ldquo;low-salt.rdquo; #160; Our Cocktail Party Statements: Aaron: Manipulation of mouths and minds makes millions for megafood companies.
