Trick and Treat cover

Trick and Treat: How 'healthy eating' is making us Barry Groves, PhD.
Trick and Treat, almost 20 years in the making, is about how commercial 'health' interests rule our lives. It is big business that decides what doctors and nutritionists are taught. As a result, we are given advice that makes us ill and dependent on the companies that have damaged us. They then profit from treating our illnesses.

Trick and Treat was an Number One Bestseller in the Preventive Medicine and Public Health category 10 days before it was actually available for sale in October 2008.

Trick and Treat was officially launched on 31 October. By 4 November it had to be reprinted, such was the demand in the UK and USA.

In 2011, Trick and Treat began use as a textbook at the University of South Florida.
