The purpose of this book is to introduce the reader to many of the current issues that relate to the environment, nutrition, food, wellbeing and health in our society. It highlights the role of wealth and "affluenza" leading to substantial waste and some unfortunate changes in our eating habits. The food industry has had a role in these changes. The book details simple guidelines that lead to a healthy lifestyle, and what we should avoid and what we should embrace in everyday living and eating. This book is different in content and layout from the standard, rather dry text book. The aim is to present the information in as straightforward and unambiguous terms as is possible without oversimplification. Statements, summaries and titillating comments, independent of the text, are highlighted and offset on page margins so the reader can easily pick these out. Tables are clearly presented. Many questions are raised about supermarket practices. For example, why are there so many choices of milk and milk products. Are all of these of benefit?
