New Book: The Unhealth Truth: How Our Food Is Making Us Sick

I am humbled to share that my book, THE UNHEALTHY TRUTH: How Our Food Is Making Us Sick and What We Can Do About It is being published by Random House today.

It includes my personal story as well as a look at the latest science on the potentially dangerous ingredients recently introduced into our food supply.  There is also quite a bit about the revolving door between the FDA and the food industry and the influence of industry and money on scientific research, addressing why the U.S. is one of the only countries in the developed world to have allowed these chemicals into our food supply.  It is a call to action that shows how each of us can do our part to prevent disease and its associated health spending in order to maintain our country’s competitiveness in the global marketplace.

Advanced praise comes from Erin Brockovich, Dr. Oz, Robert F Kennedy, Jr., Dr. Bob Sears, Graydon Carter, editor in chief of Vanity Fair and other people that I am humbled to share have leant their voices to our work.
