"The perfect treatment for the epidemic of Common Sense Deficiency sweeping America today. Reading this will cause your eyes to pop with amazement and [your] jaw to drop with astonishment, and it might also save your sanity and your life."
-David Healy, Author of Pharmageddon and Let Them Eat Prozac
"A savage indictment of the Pharmaceutical-Industrial Complex. . . . More ruthless than any drug cartel, the prescription drug industry has corrupted our political institutions, infiltrated our regulatory agencies, and bribed the medical establishment to act as dispensers of its high-priced dope, all in the obscene pursuit of mega-profits, consequences be damned. This urgent book should serve as a warning label [on] an industry that poses a grave threat to the public health."
-Jeffrey St. Clair, Author of Born under a Bad Sky and coeditor of CounterPunch
"There’s a story in this book about a pig that is so delectable, it can’t be eaten all at once. While this book may make you question eating any pig ever again, it, too, is so rich that it can’t be digested in one gulp. We all know about junk food, but what’s in Born with a Junk Food Deficiency is bound to surprise you. A wonderful weapon in the arsenal against eating muck disguised as food."
-Ingrid Newkirk, President of PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals)
