The above book, mentioned in passing by Rafal, is a superior read if you
are interested in nutrition and food, and what has happened to the
nutrition in our food as a result of big business.  Food additives get a
lot of ink - all for flavor.

Business doesn't want to improve our health.  They want us to buy their
products and will do anything towards that end.  And no, you cannot find
out what 'natural flavorings' includes - companies you have never heard of
producing chemicals that never existed before.  Did you even wonder what
pork belly tasted like sliced straight from the pig and not processed in
any way?  I can tell you this - it doesn't taste at all like bacon.  And
you can't make it because you don't have the chemicals to add to it.
Additives in steak?  Read the book, now very cheap at Abebooks.

This is exactly the kind of book I want recommended to me:  lots of science
at the layman's level with some implications for everyday living.
