Born with a junk food deficiency : how flaks, quacks, and hacks pimp the public health

Summary: A hard-hitting expose that blows the lid off of suspicious and disreputable practices in the big food and big pharmaceutical industries. The author argues that pharmaceutical and agricultural industries are tainting public health through marketing disguised as medical education and research, aggressive lobbying, and high-level conflicts of interest.
