Of all the ways to go, who would have thought the grocery store would become one of the prime unravelers of our mortal coil.

Sad but true says Nancy Deville in her book Death by Supermarket: The Fattening, Dumbing Down and Poisoning of America.

The problems are many. So many foods laden with high-fructose corn syrup, vegetable oil, endocrine disrupting soy, neurologically damaging aspartame, and all the rest of the maddening ingredients now commonplace in factory made food.

But Ms. Deville is not just talking about the problems. On Monday, July 18, at the West Tisbury Library Ms. Deville is also making the case for another way. Another of Ms. Deville’s book is called Healthy Sexy Happy: A Thrilling Journey to the Ultimate You, The Complete Guide for Men and Women, which details how you can avoid the pitfalls of supermarket eating.

Ms. Deville’s talk begins at 7 p.m. For more details, call 508-693-4589.
