It ranks as one of the great secrets of our time. A simple and elegant solution to some of the world's most pressing problems – rising food prices, increased carbon emissions and the health crisis.

The answer is here for us now if we're bold enough to take it. No breakthroughs are required, no "fad" diets. There's no need to throw away the car keys or give up real butter and juicy steaks. So why haven't we been told about this great natural gift?

Award-winning author Graham Harvey investigates the murky world of food and farming and reveals how global corporations have hijacked Britain's most basic source of life and health.

This book explains how globally-traded grains have been used to promote global warming, obesity and ill-health. It shows how – by reclaiming our greatest natural asset – we can put ourselves and the nation back on the road to health and prosperity. This book will surprise you. You'll wonder how something so vital to your health and well-being can have been kept hidden. But once you know you'll be in a position to act. You can use your power as a citizen and consumer to reclaim this stolen treasure. At this time of threat and uncertainty our country needs it as never before.
