‘In Defense of Food: An Eater’s Manifesto’ by Michael Pollan

31st December 2007

Read it.

We have been buffeted so often by conflicting studies that we’ve stopped thinking of food as food. We think of it as nutrition. (Recess at my children’s schools in Santa Monica is no longer called recess, but “nutrition.”) Pollan argues that food needs defending from “nutrition science on one side and from the food industry on the other — and from the needless complications around eating that together they have fostered.”

Hear, hear.
