Something has happened to food in America: It is no longer simply food - filling, good-tasting, life-sustaining.

We have refashioned food into preventive medicine, a moral test, sometimes literally a mortal enemy - and in the process we have lost sight of one of its most basic functions: the giving of pleasure. Stacey takes us on a revealing journey through the landscape of American food paranoia, from supermarket aisles, research laboratories, and the factories of food manufacturers to restaurant kitchens and food conventions.

The story these people tell is that of a culture trying to satisfy a near-impossi

All of a sudden it's like we've travelled back in time to the mid 1990s.
