What do you do if you want to find out if a food is healthy? If you are like most Americans, you read the label or do a google search to see what the ingredients are. Drew’s guest, Jeff Scot Philips, a former maker of “health food” tells us why neither of those go-to sources can be trusted. This mind blowing podcast comes on the heels of the release of Jeff’s new book, The Big Fat Food Fraud: Confessions of a Health-Food Hustler. In it, he shares an insider's account of the lies and deceptions which exist in the food industry, from bribes to local health inspectors, manipulated food labels, fitness industry influencers who are targeted and even having the VP of Monsanto running the FDA. Knowledge is power. Listening to this episode can help you to take your power back and take control of your health without manipulation.
