What did our ancestors eat? How does the human body convert a steak into microscopic elements? Why do some people like to eat snakes, turtles and insects? Like breathing, eating is essential to survival - and it can also be a great pleasure. Food: Step-by-Step explains food's journey through the human body, its role, its history and why healthy eating is important. The text is fascinating and the illustrations are hilarious.
