About the author, Bruce Bradley:
In the Press:
"Fat Profits is a fun, suspenseful thriller about a massive food company that will stop at nothing, not even murder, to achieve the holy grail of processed foods: a weight-control additive. Former food industry insider Bruce Bradley hits all the right notes—from the corporate front groups, to the scientific cover-up, to the 'food police' trying to stop FDA approval before it’s too late. I found myself asking, 'this couldn't really happen, could it?' The author’s cautionary message may surprise you."
What are people saying?
"A fun, heart-pounding, suspenseful read! What a great way to start a conversation about real food!”
"An action-packed thriller reminis-cent of Michael Crichton's finest work.”
"An extraordinary mix of suspense and expert information from industry insider, Bruce Bradley.”
"Fat Profits may be a work of fiction, but it parallels the web of deceit, secrecy, and politics that is so entrenched in our food system. Bruce Bradley's years of experience as a Big food VIP add a degree of realism that will leave you wondering who -- and what -- you are supporting the next time you buy your favorite cereal or chips."
Fat Profits is "a great page turner and the read is all the more compelling given Bradley's history. Before leaving the industry Bradley worked as a marketer for companies the likes of General Mills, Pillsbury and Nabisco and consequently has more insight into the ministrations of the food industry than most."
