Overview

Although Americans worship youth and beauty, we are aging rapidly. Death by Supermarket makes a compelling case that the epidemic of obesity and degenerative and neurological diseases in the US is the result of a new form of malnutrition. Since World War II, factory produced food, diets, and drugs have caused a new type of malnutrition that manifests in obesity, depression, lowered IQ, disease<and ugly death. Fat and sick, Americans are now preyed upon by the diet and drug industries. Writes author Nancy Deville, 3There is a division of the classes occurring in America that has less to do with money and more to do with personal choice. Increasingly, two distinct groups are emerging: the overweight, depressed, and sick, who eat of factory food, constantly diet, and rely on cocktails of over the counter and prescription drugs. The other group represents the eaters of organic real food who don1t diet, avoid taking drugs, and are healthy, fit, and happy.2 Death by Supermarket is a guide for busy Americans who want to break away from corporate influences and reclaim their genetic potential<to be as intelligent and physically and emotionally gifted as their genetics predispose them to be.
