Martha Rosenberg Discusses Big Food, Big Pharma and Threat to Public Health

By Judyth Piazza CEO (Editor)

A hard-hitting exposé of Big Food and Big Pharma and the threat to public health

Are you suspicious of Big Food and Big Pharma? In this hard-hitting exposé, leading national muckraker Martha Rosenberg blows the lid off of everything you thought you knew about these gigantic industries. What`s going on behind the scenes is more suspicious, more devious, more disreputable than you could ever have imagined.

Over the years, doctors, lawyers, researchers, academics, and victims have been leaking valuable insider information to the author and many were willing to come forward and finally tell all. Born with a Junk Food Deficiency includes explosive interviews with military and civilian families whose loved ones perished from dangerous, prescribed drugs, and with drug investigators themselves who confirm the risks to the public.

There are also behind the- scenes looks at farms and slaughterhouses and interviews with farm workers that will profoundly affect food consumers. What the author reveals about government complicity, regulatory food and drug safety lapses, and legislative injustices will shock and appall readers.

The message is clear: The pharmaceutical and agricultural industries are tainting public health through marketing disguised as medical education and research, aggressive lobbying, and high-level conflicts of interest.

If you`re concerned about the safety of the food you eat and the drugs you take, you owe it to yourself to read this important book.
