"A fascinating look at one of the greatest social maladies of our time: overconsumption and materialism. Hosted by National Public Radio's Scott Simon, the program explores both the comical and sobering aspects of our consumerism and its enormous impact on families, communities and the environment. With the help of historians and archival film, Affluenza reveals the forces that have dramatically transformed us from a nation that prizes thriftiness - with strong beliefs in 'plain living and high thinking' - into the ultimate consumer society"--Container

The changing American diet by Letitia Brewster( Book )

7 editions published between 1978 and 1983 in English and held by 431 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Authorities have called the American diet "pathogenic." The foods we eat contribute to the current epidemics of tooth decay, obesity, heart disease, strokes, diabetes, and cancer. Increasing medical evidence links Americans' high fat diet to heart disease, stroke, and certain forms of cancer. Our growing consumption of sugars causes tooth decay, which costs Americans three billion dollars a year in dental bills alone. Government agencies and health organizations are urging Americans to improve their health by changing their diets. Here, at last, is a clearly written account of what we are eating now and what Americans ate in the early 1900s, putting dietary changes in perspective. - Back cover
