Andrew Bosworth exposes the insanity of the over-medicated, genetically-modified, hyper-sexualized, country in which we live. So insane, it seems, that we don't even notice... we've been in the rabbit hole all along.

Think government regulation of food and drugs is there to protect you and your family? Think again. Pesticides classified as known carcinogens slip through the EPA because cost saving benefits to growers outweigh the dangers to humans.

Long gone are the days of Teddy Roosevelt, pushing through legislation to protect consumers from the ways of the meat-packing industry. Advances in health and science in the hands of drug companies and agro-business are only making us sicker.

The wall between government and the industries they regulate is a complete facade and we are paying with our health.

Far from being preachy, Bosworth merely lays out the facts - albeit, in gasp-inducing morsels of evidence. I found myself following my husband around the house reading aloud in exasperation at the amount of information that goes completely unreported in the corporate "mainstream" media on the topic.

To name a few:

- Fox News actually fired a reporter for refusing to falsify her thorough and accurate report linking Bovine Growth Hormone in dairy products and illness. (on a side note, the court actually reversed her $425K award for wrongful termination - the judge said that Fox's forcing her to lie in a news report was not actually illegal. How's that for government complicity??)

- Big Pharma spends 2-3 times as much on marketing and executive salaries than they do on R&D. (Why develop drugs for a variety of different symptoms, when you can just convince customers that they all have the same ailment?

When I first read this book (2008), I did not have an account with amazon, so I could not write a review. Dr. Bosworth put together a book that makes one question, "why am I not hearing about this from mainstream media sources?" It is amazing the things that pass us by, that if we knew about, might cause us to investigate deeper into their situations. Dr. Bosworth is one of the first credible sources I have found on similar information, not easily dismissed using peer reviewed sources. With most of the credible information revealed in this book being true, I can easily understand why mainstream media has not picked up and promoted this work.
