Just get the book and read it.This is good advise for EVERYONE, as this book is amazing beyond description. It is so comprehensive with information  that has needed to be discovered and uncovered, and believe me, Melanie Warner's work on this book is nothing short of amazing. Thank you to an excellent investigative writer.

Food (and many non-food) manufactures have added to and manipulated our food to increase shelf life. This processing removes nutrition,color, and flavor which is added back in with various non-food chemicals. This book was not an attack on the food processing business as much as a documentation of the history and demonstration of the prevalence. It reveals how "healthy" foods are created by manufacturers and aren't healthy at all. After reading this book, I've become a more educated consumer and try to use real, locally grown/raised food and to stay away for most items that come in a box, can, or wrapper.

If you've ever wonder what chemicals are in the processed food you purchase in the grocery store or restaurant, then this is the book for you. The author not only explains what the chemicals are, but also reveals why they are in the food and what these chemicals do to the food. This is an excellent book for anyone concerned about healthy eating, over weight, obesity, high blood pressure, and diabetes.

As a zombie apocalypse enthusiast, I always wondered how long processed food would remain edible. The answer is shocking – far longer than I would’ve ever anticipated. Pandora’s Lunchbox begins with the results of Warner’s home experiment where she left processed food exposed, sometimes for years, and saw little change in the products. She expands off this, digging into the procedures and chemical processes that go into modern food production. She likewise exposes how much of the nutritional value in processed foods comes from added chemicals instead of anything natural. Her reporting is solid, detailing the fascinating science behind food processing and the questionable health benefits. Definitely worth a read for anyone interested in knowing what goes into the food we eat.

An eyeopening exploration of processed foods and how they are disassembled and reassembled.
