9781616145934: Born With a Junk Food Deficiency: How Flaks, Quacks, and Hacks Pimp the Public Health

This hard-hitting exposé blows the lid off of everything you thought you knew about Big Pharma and Big Food. What goes on behind the scenes in these industries is more suspicious, more devious, more disreputable than you could have ever imagined. Rosenberg’s 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 drugs you take and the food you eat, you owe it to yourself to read this important book.

Having gained the trust of more than twenty doctors, researchers, and experts who were willing to come forward and finally tell all, reporter and editorial cartoonist Rosenberg presents us with her shocking findings. Explosive material from whistle-blowers, scientists, unsealed lawsuits, and Big Pharma’s and Big Food’s own marketers exposes how these industries put profits before public safety and how the government puts the interests of business before the welfare of consumers, creating a double whammy that "pimps" the public health. What Rosenberg reveals about government complicity, regulatory food- and drug-safety lapses, and legislative injustices will both shock and appall.

Review:

"The perfect treatment for the epidemic of Common Sense Deficiency sweeping America today. Reading this will cause your eyes to pop with amazement and [your] jaw to drop with astonishment, and it might also save your sanity and your life."
-David Healy, Author of Pharmageddon and Let Them Eat Prozac

"A savage indictment of the Pharmaceutical-Industrial Complex. . . . More ruthless than any drug cartel, the prescription drug industry has corrupted our political institutions, infiltrated our regulatory agencies, and bribed the medical establishment to act as dispensers of its high-priced dope, all in the obscene pursuit of mega-profits, consequences be damned. This urgent book should serve as a warning label [on] an industry that poses a grave threat to the public health."
-Jeffrey St. Clair, Author of Born under a Bad Sky and coeditor of CounterPunch

"There’s a story in this book about a pig that is so delectable, it can’t be eaten all at once. While this book may make you question eating any pig ever again, it, too, is so rich that it can’t be digested in one gulp. We all know about junk food, but what’s in Born with a Junk Food Deficiency is bound to surprise you. A wonderful weapon in the arsenal against eating muck disguised as food."
-Ingrid Newkirk, President of PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals)
