Synopsis

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 U.S. 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.

Biography

Denise Minger is a 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 and other health figures promoting flawed dietary dogma. A precocious academic whiz and autodidact who started college at the age of 16, Denise's own diet-related health problems plunged her, total immersion style, into the world of nutrition research...first in an attempt to heal her own body, and then to help others do the same. Denise currently lives a "real food" lifestyle in Portland, Oregon.
