and am stunned with some of the information. Sure, I knew about the adulterated olive oil and the nasty stuff that happens to shrimp, but some of the stuff they pull in the fish industry is unreal. So much brain power to cheat people. OY. And that "dry" scallops can still be adulterated??!!!! Ugh. I'm only 1/4 of the way through and am afraid to read what else people can do to food. That "you get what you pay for" may be be stretching it is so sad.
Thoreau said, 'A man is rich in proportion to the things he can leave alone.'
That sounds like a disturbing read, but possibly important. I remember when I was younger my mom told me to never order scallops at a non-seafood restaurant because they probably wouldn't even BE scallops. But I would think in this day and age of rampant food allergies that it would be harder for companies to get away with alterations. I'll have to put that book on my list.
