About the Book: The flavor of the food we eat has been changing for more than half a century. Everything we grow is bigger and cheaper - but blander. And technology lets us produce in the lab the very flavors that have been lost on the farm. The result is that we have utterly transformed what, and how much, we eat. Drawing on advances ranging from the brain science of food addiction to how plants communicate with insects, The Dorito Effect shows how we have interfered with a highly sophisticated chemical language that evolved to guide our nutrition. Fortunately, the solution is straightforward and achievable, promising longer, healthier, and more sated lives along the way.

Go Green Reads is a bi-monthly book group led by Go Green Northfield, Go Green Winnetka and Go Green Wilmette in partnership with The Book Stall.

Agus, New York Times bestselling author).

We are in the grip of a food crisis.
