Overview

The epidemics of obesity, disease, low IQ, and depression are the result of a new source of malnutrition caused by chemically loaded, nutrient dead "science fiction" food made in factories.

In Death By Supermarket, Nancy Deville masterfully links America's obsession with factory food and our growing reliance on the pharmaceutical industries. This well-researched guide based on scientific studies reveals the imminent danger behind the low fat/low cholesterol diet and links the introduction of this diet to the proliferation of high-fructose corn syrup, vegetable oil, endocrine disrupting soy, neurologically damaging aspartame, and other unhealthy ingredients that pervade factory food.

You don't have to stay fat, depressed, or sick, tethered to pharmaceuticals and dreading old age. It's never too late to begin reversing the effects of factory food. Death By Supermarket shows you how to quit dieting and taking drugs, provide your body and brain with nutritional building blocks, and reclaim your genetic potential-including your ideal body weight-by choosing a historically eaten diet of real, whole, living food.

    OH MY GOD! WE'RE BEING POISONED!

    I came across this book after trying to find some healthy choices for my menopause symptons. I couldn't put this book down. It intrigued me. The more I read the more I felt sick to my stomach. The FDA is allowing our factory food makers to make us sick. I'm cleaning out my kitchen cupboard and refrigerator and getting back to basics. Good-bye to high fructose corn syrup, soy products, milk from factory milk farms etc. And yes, the Monsanto and many other companies are killing us internally and then the pharmaceutical companies are profiting by giving us pills. When instead, all we have to do is eat good wholesome food that isn't laden with chemicals. It's a must read!!!!

    A reviewer

    As a columnist for a local newspaper, I was sent this book by a publicist that wanted me to write about it. The title intrigued me, so I cracked it open. I am so glad I did. Nancy's information kept me riveted throughout the book. We are being poisoned by the additives that factory food makers are allowed to include in their products and all because the FDA claims that these additives are generally deemed safe. Well they might be if you ate them on occasion, but these additives are in everything. After reading the book, I cleaned out my pantry of almost all the boxed food that I have. Within days, I noticed that I was sleeping better, felt better and actually lost a few pounds without trying. We even noticed that our 12 year old daughter seemed calmer, less electric and better able to focus on her homework in the evening. Never cramming her view down your throat, Nancy points out, in easy to understand terms, that our processed food generation is fat and dying because the government is allowing the food makers to poison us little by little. Read this book. Even if you only buy into half of what she says and try applying it to your life, I promise you will feel better. Consuming real, unprocessed food will change your life!

    Why doesn't everyone know about this stuff?

    After feeling frustated in finding good wholesome foods for my tolder in the the supermarket, I bought this book to see what info it has for my family. So glad I did! This isn't some fanatical view--it makes perfect sense. We are living proof of our dietary intake. I can't afford to completely throw out everything in my pantry. But I will be replacing things once others run out. You WILL be amazed--we really should demand more from our food suppliers.
