Death by Food Pyramid
- How Shoddy Science, Sketchy Politics and Shady Special Interests Have Ruined Our Health
- By: Denise Minger
- Narrated by: David Minger
- Length: 8 hrs and 5 mins
In Death by Food Pyramid, Denise Minger exposes the forces that overrode common sense and solid science to launch a pyramid phenomenon that bled far beyond US borders to taint the eating habits of the entire developed world. Minger explores how generations of flawed pyramids and plates endure as part of the national consciousness, and how the "one size fits all" diet mentality these icons convey pushes us deeper into the throes of obesity and disease.
