A Very informative and disturbing book about food. The book is heavily researched and well written. I honestly envy Schatzker for his knowledge about nutrition. I really wish that I could adapt my life to a healthier eating regimen. The Dorito Effect takes you on a journey in time when the Dorito we conceived. Schatzker makes the case that this single incident caused a meltdown of real flavored food.
WARNING: You will never look at the words "Natural Flavors" the same again. You cannot unring that bell. The books dives into not only the "junk food" but how the Dorito Effect has effected all kinds of food and even animals that we eat. Reminds me of a book I read 11/22/63 where a guy goes back in time to save Kennedy from being assassinated. In the book, the portal for time travel is located inside a diner. That diner is famous in the area for the absolute best hamburgers. Turns out, the owner was traveling back in time and bringing back meat that tasted so different than the ones available in the current day.
I recommend this book, but if you really enjoy junk food and do not want to stop eating it, stay away from it.
