STUFFED: Who’s (Really) Making America Fat, Hank J. Cardello with Doug Garr

Food industry insider and marketer Hank J. Cardello (writing with journalist Doug Garr) offers hard-hitting solutions to the current health crisis that can benefit both the consumer and the industry itself. Taking the industy to task for pushing foods that contribute to the soaring rates worldwide in heart disease and diabetes, Cardello argues that food manufacturers and distributors are creating a “food underclass” that cuts across all socio-economic groups. We have the tools and technology, Cardello posits, to create more healthful versions of the foods we love, thereby extending life, dramatically cutting healthcare costs–and that doing this is not only ethical, but profitable.
