    I was badly misled by the title and cover of this book. It LOOKED like a book on how junk food has been pushed into the American diet. The title, "Born with a Junk Food Deficiency," along with the corn chips on the cover, certainly led me to expect that the book might possibly be about, well, junk food. Not so. Half the book is a rant against pharmaceuticals, which the author (an editorial cartoonist) calls "Big Pharma" in true yellow-journalism style. Now, some of what she says is in fact worth [...]

    In my view this book is unfortunately titled, because it is an expose about both the drug industry and the corporate food industrial complex, and not at all about what we generally think of as "junk food." Its point is that the stuff we ordinarily think of as "real" food (e.g. meat, eggs, milk) is junk, in that it is drug-laced and most of the time we don't know it.This is a good book with some real eye-opening information, containing extensive references for every chapter. It is really two book [...]

    Exposes the deceptive marketing practices of the pharmaceutical and food industries. Significant side effects are intentionally hidden or downplayed in order to drive sales. Studies are paid for by the big companies like Monsanto, Merck and AstraZeneca. Then they willingly pay millions in fines knowing that they will make 10 times as much. The Beef, Dairy and Egg councils routinely misrepresent information to increase sales. Although the U.S. always carries a milk surplus, cows are given hormone [...]

    Nothing new for me here -- 1/2 the book is about Big Pharma and the other Half is about Big Food. I sort-of skimmed most of it as it is very dense and referential. The Big Food portion was nothing new to me and the Big Pharma -- some of it seemed overblown yet there really isn't much to spread awareness and make people think before they take a pill. I somehow wish she could have tied to two together better -- as in better, feel better, take less meds. That is what sparked my interest.

    I like it a lot. loaded full of information to absorb. Ive been against "Big Pharma" and this bookgoes into a great deal about the pills that affect our lives. The book should be renamed fromeveryones mothers advice "DONT PUT THAT IN YOUR MOUTH"!

    An interesting read. I've read a lot of similar books. Fast Food Nation comes to mind. I didn't read anything that surprised me. If you have not read much on the topic already, I'd highly recommend.

    I could not finish this book. It just felt a little too over the top for my taste. It was as if there was a plot against us in about everything around us. I just don't like to think that way so I had to shelf this book.

    I started paging through this book at the library and quickly realized that I needed to read it. Not only does the author explore the meat,oil try and dairy that we eat but looks at the drugs we ingest. I was hooked from page one until the end and wanting more.

    Amazing book, every person who eats or drinks should read it!! Sadly its not very shocking at how the govt would rather protect big business and money then their own citizens.

    Heavy-duty reference source of the ways pharma and food companies create their own regulations as they poison and cheat people.
