Bee Wilson and Joanna Blythman – Are We What We Eat?

What really goes into the food we eat? Journalist and broadcaster Joanna Blythman felt she had unanswered questions about the food we consume every day. Swallow This is a fascinating exploration of the food processing industry and its products – which give an utterly eye-opening account of what we’re really swallowing. Bee Wilson’s First Bite draws on current research from both neuroscience and psychology, and the author’s experience parenting three children and visiting numerous school canteens, as well as talking to dieticians, biologists and consumer researchers, to look at where our food habits come from; and what it would really take to change them for the better.
