Hooked: Food, Free Will, and How the Food Giants Exploit Our Addictions

HookedFrom the #1 New York Timesbestselling author of Salt Sugar Fat comes a powerful exposé of how the processed food industry exploits our evolutionary instincts, the emotions we associate with food, and legal loopholes in their pursuit of profit over public health.

Michael Moss uses the latest research on addiction to uncover what the scientific and medical communities as well as food manufacturers already know: that food, in some cases, is even addictive than alcohol, cigarettes, and drugs. Our bodies are hardwired for sweets, so food giants have developed.

Fifty six types of sugar to add to their products, creating in us the expectation that everything should be cloying; we've evolved to prefer fast, convenient meals, hence our modern day preference for ready to eat foods. Moss goes on to show how the processed food industry including major companies like Nestlé, Mars, and Kellogg's has tried not only to evade this troubling discovery about the addictiveness of food but to actually exploit it. For instance, in response to recent dieting trends, food manufacturers have simply turned junk food into junk diets, fill.
