Summary
In this book, Kristin Lawless argues that, because of the degradation of our diet, our bodies are literally changing from the inside out. The billion-dollar food industry is reshaping our food preferences, altering our brains, changing the composition of our microbiota, and even affecting the expression of our genes. Lawless chronicles how this is happening and what it means for our bodies, health, and survival, going beyond nutrition to issues of food choice, class, race, and gender and presenting her philosophy of eating that she calls the "Whole Egg Theory."
