    This book embeds democracy in its very structure. The first part of each of its sections—Labor, Seeds, Pesticides, Energy, Health, Hunger, Trade–reviews how the requirement that corporations focus on profits has harmed workers, undermined small farmers, imperiled health, damaged the environment, and imposed highly processed “junk” foods.   The book contrasts myriads of local intricacies with the global health attempts at ‘treating obesity’. The book links eating practices to such heterogeneous things as pesticides, traditional social obligations of food preparation, the workings of bodies, global politics and hunger, fortified sugar, the beauty of fatness, and racism. The complex politics of global warming results from numerous cofactors arising from the global economy's dependence on carbon dioxide (CO 2) emitting fossil fuels; and because greenhouse gases such as CO 2, methane and N 2 O (mostly from agriculture) cause global warming.   Michelle Mart, associate professor of history at Penn State Berks, investigates why Americans cling to their love of pesticides despite warnings, rising costs, and declining effectiveness in her recently published book titled "Pesticides, A Love Story: America's Enduring Embrace of Dangerous Chemicals" (University Press of Kansas, ).
