From breakfast cereal to chicken subs to nutrition bars, processed foods account for roughly 70 percent of our nation's calories. Despite the growing presence of farmers' markets and organic produce, strange food additives are nearly impossible to avoid. Combining meticulous research, vivid writing, and cultural analysis, Warner blows the lid off the largely undocumented - and lightly regulated - world of chemically treated and processed foods and lays bare the potential price we may pay for consuming even so-called "healthy" foods.

What did you like best about Pandora's Lunchbox? What did you like least?
A nice background on food history
Any additional comments?
There's obvious bias present in some of the stories based on the author's own perceptions and a desire to persuade others. Substances such as fatty acids are referred to as "grease" as a way of influencing others or attempting to debase some of the substances. This style is repeatedly used throughout the text and juxtaposed against scientific or factual data to attempt to provide more emphasis. Overall, a decent history lesson on the food and supplement industry.

Not much different from other books of its kind. Narrator has an artificially perky voice for nonfiction. She sounds like she'd reading about Disney princesses to a group of 3rd graders. Pass.
