How can it be that the British ate better, nutritionally speaking, during the rationing years of the Second World War than they have since? And how did we get to the point today where each of us has at least 300 man-made chemicals sloshing around inside our bodies, in untested and potentially toxic combinations? To find out how our food came to make us fat rather than healthy, James Fergusson turns to the scientist who devised the wartime diet and follows a murky trail of industrial espionage, unsolved murder and commercial greed right onto the plates we set before our families every day.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Deftly put together and compelling written, Fergusson interweaves an intriguing real-life murder mystery with the short, shameful history of the agrochemical industry that has made unwitting guinea pigs of us all.' Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall 'An intriguing and thought-provoking historical whodunnit that investigates the sinister roots of our 21st-century toxic legacy.' Joanna Blythman 'Thought-provoking and frightening in turns, but most of all utterly brilliant - This is an important book: read it and weep, and then get very, very angry.' Tim Smit, Director, Eden Project
