Do you really know what you are eating? Safe and nutritious food should be the right of each and every one of us - not a privelege. If labeling laws were written for the protection of the consumer - and not to aid the food manufacturers, you would already know that genetically engineered foods and irradiated foods are for sale in your supermarket. Our health officials, however, seem to be working less in the interest of the consumer and more in favor of the large corporate manufacurers when it comes to legislating adequate food labeling laws. We have a right to know the truth about the effects on our bodies caused by foods processed with chemical food additives, irradiation and gene manipulation. Nevertheless, the average person can consume hundreds of chemicals a day without knowing it. Even the most alert label-reader will have no idea of the scores of additives that the government permits in foods but which are not required to be listed on product labels. Hard to Swallow: The Truth About Food Additives is a wake-up call to the shocking state of our food laws and is a primer for those who want to know why the food supply is genetically manipulated, bombarded with radiation and laced with additives.
About the Author
Doris Sarjeant and Karen Evans began researching food additives in the late '70s out of concern for their children's health. For the past twenty years, they have monitored the findings of the World Health Organization, the US Food and Drug Administration and the Canadian Food and Drugs Act in order to uncover the the shocking truth about the ingredients and manufacturing processes that go into the foods we eat every day. The first edition (The Truth About Food Additives) prompted Canada's health officials to try to ban further publication and distribution of the book. Thankfully, Sarjeant and Evans persisted in their research and the result is the most comprehensive guide to food additives ever produced.
