Pandora’s Lunchbox: How Processed Food Took Over the American Meal

From packaged cheese that lasts for eternity to the 105 ingredients in a Subway sweet onion-chicken teriyaki sandwich, freelance writer and former New York Times business reporter Melanie Warner explores the scary depths of American food engineering in her exposé, Pandora’s Lunchbox: How Processed Food Took Over the American Meal. At a time when processed food accounts for a good 70 percent of the nation’s calories, Warner reveals the immense implications of our diets in the hopes that a brighter, healthier future lies in store.
