About this deal

Medical doctor and broadcaster Chris van Tulleken has spent his career trying to reframe the conversation around eating right, balancing the hard (and sometimes shocking) facts about what we’re putting into our bodies with empathy for the natural desire to keep eating what we like, have time for, and can afford. Beautifully written, each page reveals hidden truths and asks you to re-think and re-connect to food in a way that has been lost for decades. Threaded throughout is a highly engaging personal account of the author's own confused relationship with UPF as a doctor, parent and sibling.

An eye-opening investigation into the science, economics, history and production of ultra-processed food.
