"As Anna Lappé reveals in this important book, we must be conscious of what we eat - not only for our own health, but for the health of the planet. When it comes to climate change, junk food may prove even more destructive than S.U.V.s. Lappé's message is timely and empowering."
—Eric Schlosser, Fast Food Nation
Anna Lappé is a national bestselling author, television host, and public speaker, known for her work on sustainability and food systems.
