Doctor Chris Van Tulleken’s, Ultra-Processed People – now a #1 SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER…

This is a fascinating and important book and I can’t recommend it too highly. Once you start reading you won’t be able to put it down.

At last the risks of ultra-processed foods (UPFs)  and the corporate-led food system are starting to be acknowledged.  For too long, many nutrition campaigns have focused only on ‘nutrients’ and problematic ingredients such as salt, sugar and fat – the perfect distraction.   As the consummate communicator, Chris explains in his engaging and non judgmental way, how and why UPFs have been the silent, unstoppable cash generator that have allowed corporations to change our taste palates, displace real food, damage our health and harm the environment.

Nestlé is far from the only culprit – but if you haven’t been boycotting this company yet …read this book.

It’s in all good bookshops and available in audio and digital format.
