Publisher's Summary

Warning: Shock and outrage will grip you as you dive into this one-of-a-kind exposé. Shoddy science, sketchy politics, and shady special interests have shaped American Dietary recommendations - and destroyed our nation's health - over recent decades. The phrase "Death by Food Pyramid" isn't shock-value sensationalism, but the tragic consequence of following federal advice and corporate manipulation in pursuit of health.
In Death by Food Pyramid, Denise Minger exposes the forces that overrode common sense and solid science to launch a pyramid phenomenon that bled far beyond US borders to taint the eating habits of the entire developed world.
Minger explores how generations of flawed pyramids and plates endure as part of the national consciousness, and how the "one size fits all" diet mentality these icons convey pushes us deeper into the throes of obesity and disease. Regardless of whether you're an omnivore or vegan, research junkie or science-phobe, health novice or seasoned dieter, Death by Food Pyramid will reframe your understanding of nutrition science - and inspire you to take your health, and your future, into your own hands.

Terrific material made taxing by poor narration

I think the subject matter in this book is excellent. It's a well formulated discussion about how we should be thinking about the food we eat and absorbing information from others on that subject. I really think it should be required reading for anyone exploring the subject of health and diets.

However, the narrator of the book lacks qualities of professional narrators. The tone is very encyclopedic. For instance, humor is often read with identical tone and inflection as scientific terminology without any clear consciousness conveyed about the actual material. Basically, this will sound as if a male Siri were reading with a Midwestern accent.

No offense to the performer but I hope this is redone with a veteran audio book narrator.

One of the best nutrition books out there

I've read a LOT of books on nutrition and this one is definitely top 3. The Paleolithic cure and eat for health are the other two that were really good
