Animal, Vegetable, Junk: A History of Food, from Sustainable to Suicidal (2021)

Even still, Bittman refuses to concede that the battle is lost, pointing to activists, workers, and governments around the world who are choosing well-being over corporate greed and gluttony, and fighting to free society from Big Food’s grip.
