The Great Food Gamble, Paperback Book

The Great Food Gamble Paperback


John Humphrys is passionate about the state of British food, farming, fishing and agriculture.

Here, he looks back to the days of organic farming in England when people shared and swapped food and considered the wildlife as well as the farmed animals, crops and fruits.

He examines today's travesties: factory farming, pouring chemicals into the land, the scandal of the supermarket wars and cheap imported goods.

He then turns to the future and asks: Can we save this ravaged earth and rebuild our community values?

Most of all, can we reverse the damage to ourselves and our long-term health that may result from what we eat? John Humphrys' book requires the full attention of anyone who cares about themselves or the future.
