Lifts the veil on our nation's food industry, exposing how our nation's food supply is now controlled by a handful of corporations that often put profits ahead of consumer health, the livelihood of the American farmer, the safety of workers and our own environment. Reveals surprising--and often shocking--truths about what we eat, how it's produced and who we have become as a nation. Fast food to all food -- A cornucopia of choices -- Unintended consequences -- The dollar menu -- In the grass -- Hidden costs -- From seed to the supermarket -- The veil -- Shocks to the system -- Power of the consumer.
