Wired magazine published an excerpt of Benjamin Cohen‘s book Pure Adulteration, which focuses on our country’s adulterated, contaminated, and fake food system.

“So it is that adulteration was a problem in the past, adulteration is a problem today, and adulteration will be a problem tomorrow,” writes Cohen, associate professor of engineering studies. “Pure food crusaders thought they had solved it for good; we probably think we’ll solve it now. They didn’t, and we won’t. Adulteration’s presumed antithesis, purity, is a dreary if not constant pursuit.”
