Have you ever been “spiced”?

Have you ever overdosed on sugar, salt, coffee, or chocolate? Or have you used alcohol, marijuana, tobacco, cocaine, or opioids? If so, you’ve been spiced! These substances-dubbed spices by author John L. Graham-entertain our brains but can cause serious health problems. Yet Americans waste roughly 16 percent of their collective income on spices. In Spiced, Graham explores how addiction to these substances devastates economies, cultures, and public health, and he exposes the culprit behind our overdependence: marketing.

Can we change our policies to promote public well-being and stymie corporate greed? Read Spiced to find out.
