The title is about the Food Pyramid, something widely recognized. Shady Politics is about the food pyramid and how it came into being. It's a history lesson about personal ambition and corporate interests leading to really bad policy. A catchy title, but it's not the whole book. This book is about much more. Not as detailed as Gary Taubes' book "Good Calories, Bad Calories," it makes the case against the low fat, high carb recommendations of the food pyramid. Slippery Science is a solid gem, I thought.

Death by Food Pyramid is the offspring of her last couple of years of effort, and it is well worth a serious read. It’s just the kind of book I really enjoy: a goulash of history, science and gossip. A surprise on every page. Though not really a low-carb book per se, Death by Food Pyramid belongs on the shelf of every low-carber.

Death by Food Pyramid: How Shoddy Science, Sketchy Politics and Shady Special Interests Have Ruined Our Health. Shoddy science, sketchy politics, and shady special interests have shaped American dietary recommendations-and destroyed our nation's health-over recent decades. The phrase "death by food pyramid" isn't shock-value sensationalism, but the tragic consequence of following federal advice and corporate manipulation in pursuit of health.

Denise Minger stops by to talk about how the food pyramid was blatantly manipulated and what true healthy eating looks like.

Ultimately, Death by Food Pyramid is about empowering you, the consumer, the eater of food, the arbiter of what goes in your mouth, to make the right choices and bypass the middlemen when it comes to interpreting science

Death by Food Pyramid: How Shoddy Science, Sketchy Politics and Shady Special Interests Have Ruined Our Health by Denise Minger Format: mobi/epub/azw3 Length: 300 pages Genre: Non-Fiction/Health Date: 1 January 2014 Shoddy science, sketchy politics and shady special interests have shaped American dietary recommendations - and destroyed our nation's health - over recent decades. The phrase Death by Food Pyramid isn't shock-value sensationalism, but the tragic consequence of simply doing what we have been told to do by our own government - and giant food profiteers - in pursuit of health. In Death by Food Pyramid, Denise Minger exposes the forces that overrode common sense and solid science to launch a pyramid phenomenon that bled far beyond US borders to taint the eating habits of the entire developed world. Denise explores how generations of flawed pyramids and plates endure as part of the national consciousness, and how the "one-size-fits-all" diet mentality these icons convey pushes us deeper into the throes of obesity and disease. Regardless of whether you're an omnivore or vegan, research junkie or science-phobe, health novice or seasoned dieter, Death by Food Pyramid will reframe your understanding of nutrition science, and inspire you to take your health, and future, into your own hands. Author: Denise Minger is a Portland, OR-based health writer and lecturer with a reputation for aggressively challenging today's leading voices of conventional wisdom. Her meticulously researched critiques decimating USDA guidelines and The China Study--published on her blog, RawFoodSOS.com--have made her a major player in the progressive health community, and a major thorn in the side of both mainstream nutritionists other health figures promoting flawed dietary dogma.
