In North America and elsewhere, there is a growing concern by
many that they are no longer connected in any meaningful way with
the production or processing of the food they consume. Furthermore,
many sources portray a negative bias regarding the production,
transport, processing, and marketing of today's food.
In "DEMYSTIFYING FOOD FROM FARM TO FORK," author Maurice J.
Hladik examines a plethora of issues surrounding the agricultural
industry. It answers the questions of what is food, what does farm
to market really mean, and whether the food we eat is safe. It also
discusses the controversies and socioeconomic concerns surrounding
food and the food supply, such as the role of government; farming,
environment, and biodiversity; genetically modi ed food; organic
foods; the 100-mile diet; weather, climate, and food; and animal
and poultry welfare.
Hladik-a descendant of European farmers who settled on farms in
Nebraska, Iowa, and Minnesota as early as 1834-not only provides a
lively discussion of food controversies, but also shares hundreds
of little-known facts about food and farming.
