The Poison Squad: One Chemist's Single-Minded Crusade for Food Safety at the Turn of the Twentieth Century by Deborah Blum is a dramatic true story of how food was made safe in the United States and the heroes, led by inimitable Dr. Harvey Washington Wiley, who fought for change.

In 1883, Dr. Harvey Washington Wiley, a chemistry professor from Purdue University, was named chief chemist of the adriculture department, and the agency began methodically investigating food and drink fraud, even conducting shocking human tests on groups of young men who came to be known as, "The Poison Squad." Over the next 30 years Dr. Wiley fought for food safety and consumer protection. Blum brings to life this timeless and hugely satisfying tale of confronting corporate greed and government corruption with a bracing clarity, which speaks resoundingly to enormous social and political challenges we face today.
