The End of Food

Author(s): Paul Roberts


The End of Food presents an in-depth report on why our global food industry is responsible for a severe decline in health and nutritional standards around the world. This problem is the factor behind many seemingly disparate problems, from obesity to Avian Flu, from famine to the decline in family meals. The End of Food is also a timely and important warning about what is likely to happen when the world's limited food resources run out.

Paul Roberts charts the history of food production, from hunting to agriculture, from food as a necessity to food as a commodity, and explains why the current system will not sustain the needs of an increasing world population. Issues of diet, health and the political and economic influence of the food industry are comprehensively and passionately argued.
