Salmonella-tainted tomatoes, riots, and skyrocketing prices are
only the latest in a series of food-related crises that have
illuminated the failures of the modern food system. InThe End
of Food,Paul Roberts investigates this system and presents a
startling truth-how we make, market, and transport our food is no
longer compatible with the billions of consumers the system was
built to serve.The emergence of large-scale and efficient food
production forever changed our relationship with food and
ultimately left a vulnerable and paradoxical system in place.
High-volume factory systems create new risks for food-borne
illness; high-yield crops generate grain, produce, and meat of
declining nutritional quality; and while nearly a billion people
are overweight, roughly as many people are starving.In this vivid
narrative, Roberts presents clear, stark visions of the future and
helps us prepare to make the necessary decisions to survive the
demise of food production as we know it.
