'Parents are fighting the corner store,' says Michael Moss
The author of the current bestseller 'Salt Fat Sugar' appears on Al Jazeera’s 'The Stream' to talk about how we've gotten hooked on junk. (Our food blogger makes a little guest appearance on the show, too.)
Micheal Moss’ “Salt Sugar Fat: How the Food Giants Hooked Us” is number nine on the New York Times' best selling non-fiction list right now. The book highlights how junk food makers get us hooked. They have one goal — to sell more products — so they spend millions of dollars on research and development to find out just what will make eaters crave more of their foods.
Al Jazeera’s “The Stream,” an online community with a daily Web show, interviewed Moss yesterday about how to fight back. They also invited me to pre-record a videotaped question for Moss, and I posed a question about how to discourage my kids from stopping by the mini mart on their way home from school. The entire interview is filled with important information that you’ll want to hear. Look for me around the 25:30 mark.
