Felicity Lawrence ☆ Not on the Label Text

Itions of migrant workers ravaged fields in Europe and the supermarket on our high street are all intimately connected Her discoveries would change the way we thought about the UK food industry for ever And when the horsemeat scandal hit the headlines in her book seemed extraordinarily prescient once again Now in this new edition of her seminal work Felicity Lawrence delves deeply into that scandal and uncovers how the great British public ended up eating horses 'A brave examination of the calamities caused by a policy laughingly called one of 'c I've always tried to dissuade my wife from buying reduced price fruit and veg in the supermarket This is because I want my body to continue to be strong and healthy and I think that one way to do this is to feed it the right kind of food and I don't think that eating old food is the right way to get enough nutrients etc We are what we eat rightI'm not sure why I bought this book I mean on the face of it we should take an interest in what we eat and make sure it's nutritious and all that; but on the other hand if we have to eat it anyway and then we find out that it's irredeemably full of so much crap chemicals that it’s making us ill in ways that we can’t avoid – then why do we want to knowSo on starting this book I envisioned that I would be put off my food forever and I would still have to eat it It was great then that it started with chicken or as I call them – chickens – it’s a bit like the difference between pork and pigs because as a vegetarian I don’t eat them I thought on this basis that I wouldn’t be bothered about what they do to chicken and on one level I was right But what they do to chickens in order to arrive at chicken is another matter Don’t worry – no gory details here – but suffice to say they ain’t happy bunnies by any stretch of the chalkSo then we comes to lettuce and before I started reading I’m thinking I’ll be ok if I just wash it – and I was mostly right But then we gets onto the problem of supermarkets It seems that without me being aware of it – supermarkets have come to embody everything that is evil about the world Again if you wants to know the details – read the book yourself but suffice to say lettuce farmers ain’t happy bunnies by any stretch of the chalkNext up is bread This is the part that changed my life so listen up The bread we buy in the evil supermarkets is mostly factory bread that is full of air and water and so isn’t as good for us as we’d like to think – even the brown ones with seeds on the top What we need is proper thick heavy bread made by real bakers with their real hands So I started eating that And it’s good I can’t say I really feel any healthier – yet – but when I get to one hundred and I’m still doing cartwheels I be sure to edit this review and let you knowOh and the last chapter is the best so if you’re short of time and patience just read that one‘Nuff said
