Media Reviews
In between presenting Radio 4's Today programme, reading the Nine O'Clock News and going abroad in a variety of other BBC posts, Humphrys has managed to own a dairy farm for 10 years. Having challenged the nation's social and moral values in Devil's Advocate, his 1999 debut book, the state of the nation's food must have seemed the next logical subject. Although the text is embargoed, Hodder cheerfully predicts he will cause a storm with his controversial views on factory farming, constant use of pesticides, creation of superbugs and genetically modified food. He is part of the organic school, with consideration for wildlife, community values and proposing the reversal of damage to the land and our health through what we eat.
