Do you give much thought to the products you eat and drink?
What about the products that you use for your health and beauty routine, those products that occupy the space in your medicine cabinet, or those random chemical concoctions that you use for a variety of household purposes?
Patrick di Justo, a writer for Wired magazine, has given a lot of thought to not only what you put in your mouth, but also what you put on your tires, in your eyes, and on your skin. His new book, This is What You Just Put in Your Mouth is a spin-off of his work for Wired. His book is like a written version of TV’s “How it’s Made”, but with more of a focus on the individual components in products rather than how the ingredients come together to make a finished product.
This is What You Just Put in Your Mouth explains some of the scientific reactions that happen when ingredients come together. This will make it an interesting read for those who enjoy chemistry. The humor of di Justo’s writing also makes the book more interesting than it otherwise would be.
FTC Disclosure: I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.
