Every year, the average American eats seventy pounds of sugar and every day, we ingest 8,500 milligrams of salt.
In Salt Sugar Fat, Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative reporter Michael Moss shows how we ended up here. Moss's explosive, empowering narrative is grounded in meticulous, eye-opening research. He unearths marketing techniques taken straight from tobacco company playbooks, and talks to concerned insiders who make startling confessions. Just as millions of 'heavy users' are addicted to salt, sugar, and fat, so too are the companies that peddle them. You will never look at a nutrition label the same way again.
