This journalistic treatment of foodborne illnesses traces the rise in the dangers associated with foods to vast changes in the past 25 years of how we grow, process, and transport our agricultural goods. Relying on interviews with epidemiologists, physicians, FDA and USDA officials, farmers, distributors, and victims of foodborne illnesses, the author discusses the growing frequency of problems related to super salmonella, campylobacter, E. coli, mad cow disease, and various other pathogens. She argues that we need to become more aware of the problems that result from the willingness of large agribusinesses to take risks with other peoples lives.
