Michael Moss is a Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative journalist and bestselling author of Salt Sugar Fat: How the Food Giants Hooked Us. His new book is Hooked: Food, Free Will, and How the Food Giants Exploit Our Addictions.
Moss explains how the processed food industry has weaponized our hunger. He also highlights how the processed food industry is constantly developing new ways to use excess amounts of salt, sugar, fat, protein -- and now genetic engineering – to create food products that human beings will find irresistible.
Moss also shares what the processed food industry learned from the tobacco companies about developing food products that will keep them from being sued for manipulating the public. And Moss highlights how the history and present of the processed food industry is a lens into race, class, gender, and social inequality.
