This book offers us thorough, new information about what we find on our grocer’s shelves to enable us to choose food that is good for us.
The author reveals the truth about the toxic substances in food that we are not told about. And about how the nutritional value of food is declining without us realising it. About systematic mistakes in feeding the animals we eat, and also mistreatment and medication of them. About the dark sides of genetic modification, pasteurisation, processing and packing. About how food inspectors are becoming more concerned with servingpowerful industry interests than with the health of the citizens. And also about all the good and pure foodstuffs that are still available. Valuable information for people at a time when the distance between producers and consumers of foods is growing steadily greater.
When you have read this sensational book, you will be aware of the foodstuffs to choose for the sake of your own health and also be enabled to use your power as a consumer to get clean, e vironmentally friendly food in your local shops.
Worryingly well documented, well written and important.
‘Geelmuyden points out the obvious links between bad food and ill health.’
‘Truths of the Table is a great book and an important contribution when it comes to highlighting some of the consequences of our food being produced as cheaply as possible.’
‘Both the methods of the food industry and the contents of raw ingredients are revealed in this book. Geelmuyden also gives advice about how simple it can be to choose safe, organic and healthy alternatives with the right know-how. An important and well-written book.’
‘Maybe it is high time to take all this unpleasant information seriously and not just with a pinch of salt?’
‘On the foods way from the field to the table, Geelmuyden finds many unappetizing facts. From the growth in pesticides in Norwegian farmin (318 tons in 2011 compared to 282 tons in 2008), an alarming number of certain serious illnesses in exposed populations, the use of ever dubious fillers as replacement for real food, an last but not least: he follows the traces of how economic interest overruns the farmers and consumers requirement for healthy production and food.‘
