Death by food pyramid is an energetic exploration on what went wrong with the food pyramid. Minger starts out talking discussing her own trials with raw veganism as a teenager and how it ruined her teeth. One thing she tries to do throughout the book is help explain and simplify lots of the ideas on foods. This must have been an exhausting undertaking compiling modern and historic ideas on foods and trying to eloquently explain. Parts of the book was over my head scientifically. The takeaway I have from the book is there is no diet that is perfect for everyone and it is a chore to find all the proper nutrition.
