5.0 out of 5 stars Mystery Solved. Case Closed., September 29, 2007
This review is from: Death by Supermarket: The Fattening, Dumbing Down, and Poisoning of America (Paperback)
Americans are destroying their health through the systematic consumption of foods prepared to satisfy the lowest common denominator in terms of quality, compliance and cost.

Ms. Deville hits the nail on the head with terrific insights into everything from our national addiction to sugar and the grotesque hyper insulin response it is creating, to MSG, transfats and the chemical dump we are creating in our guts and bloodstreams. Is there any more confusion about obesity, diabetes, heart disease, strokes, and even cancer?

Overall the book is a great read, Ms. Deville's tone shows as much genuine concern as it does outrage for the horrible misinformation the food and health care industry has been perpetuating. She also exposes the terrible truth that most of the popular diets used to fix the problem make matters even worse and can condemn our metabolism to a sluggish mess.

This is a great read for anyone genuinely concerned about their health and the health of their family.

I agree with her 110% and she is right and we are destroying ourselves. The sad part is that people are so tired and people are working two jobs and by the time they come home and then shop and they just want to get it over with. Instead of enjoying the shopping and buying whole nutritional food and people just go and shop and go home and consume.

Beware - this man has reviewed three books over five years, and two of them are by Nancy Deville. (The third is by Ayn Rand!!) Case closed?
