Governments and individuals are becoming increasingly aware of the physical and political implications of what we eat. The Political Economy of Diet and Health discusses food in relation to public health policy. Continuing the exploration of food systems theory begun in the authors' previous publications, it challenges with a critical exposition of food systems theory. It also analyses the existing approaches to food consumption. Subjects discussed include: resolving the diet paradox the impact of the EU the lack of policy in the UK an exploration of the 'diseases of affluence' the Norwegian experience This book is unique in providing a cohesive picture of what we eat and why, and how food policy is developing in response to this. It is a valuable contribution to the new and vital discipline of food studies.
