As globalized and highly processed industrial products, many of our foods are only a shadow of their former selves.
Their development is preceded by tricky marketing strategies, research in the service of the profit interests of large corporations and lobby groups, but hardly ever health, sustainable development or the common good for a prosperous coexistence.
Only an unbiased, critical look behind the scenes of the system makes clear what social burdens result from it: socio-economic, health-related and political. Are there simple alternatives and ways out? Can self-determination, democratic participation and enjoyment of food ever become normality?
Dr. Hans-Ulrich Grimm is a journalist and author and runs the information and education portal Dr. Watson - The Food Detective.
