In one of the wealthiest nations on the planet, one might expect the food we eat to be safe and free of deadly bacteria and other organisms that might make us sick, but the truth is that there is very little oversight of our food and its delivery, and that foodborne illnesses are at their highest levels in years. Here, Charles Duncan takes us on a tour of the food industry and its regulations, reveals the dangers, suggests solutions, and encourages consumers to make better decisions and demand better safety.
Charles Duncan has been writing non-fiction for the last forty years.

Editorial Reviews

Eat, Drink, & Be Wary is a detailed examination of the failure of government oversight agencies to protect consumers from food companies that place profit above everything else. This failure of the agencies that are supposed to oversee the food industries leads to horrible cruelty to farm animals and a polluted food supply. You will cry and, if you have a dark sense of humor, you will laugh. My hope is that you will also be spurred to action.
