What should we have for dinner? When you can eat just about anything nature (or the supermarket) has to offer, deciding what you should eat will inevitably stir anxiety, especially when some of the foods might shorten your life. Today, buffeted by one food fad after another, America is suffering from a national eating disorder. As the cornucopia of the modern American supermarket and fast food outlet confronts us with a bewildering and treacherous landscape, what's at stake becomes not only our own and our children's health, but the health of the environment that sustains life on earth. Pollan follows each of the food chains--industrial food, organic or alternative food, and food we forage ourselves--from the source to the final meal, always emphasizing our coevolutionary relationship with the handful of plant and animal species we depend on. The surprising answers Pollan offers have profound political, economic, psychological, and even moral implications for all of us.--From publisher description.… (mais)

    In Defense of Food: An Eater's Manifesto por Michael Pollan (marzipanz, chrisharpe)
    chrisharpe: Less of a narrative than "The Omnivore's Dilemma", "In Defense of Food" is a succinct argument for considering what we eat, and includes potted advice for consumers who prefer a set of simple rules for eating. As the title suggests, this is perhaps the better analysis of the way the food industry affects the eater and what we can do about it.… (mais)

Pollan follows food from origin to table through four different chains. Industrial/organic, grass fed and hunted/gathered. There is a lot I’d probably rather not know. He gives a fairly balanced look at the philosophical underpinnings of the act of eating ( )

Good and great journalistic writing but oversimplified and missing the full range of what we can and should eat in detail. ( )

Once in a great while, I read a book that I am sorry to reach the end of. This is one such. The topic is so interesting; the information so rich; the telling so entertaining. Pollan opens up some both new vistas and darkened closets concerning the foods we eat. And he does it without an alarmist or judgmental tone. His approach is thoughtful and thorough. Yes, he does come down eventually on some particular positions. But he does so lightly, personally. His goal is not to convince you to join him in a particular food camp. He just wants you to approach food considerately, meaning: consider the food you eat, and what it means to you and the world.
I made an exception to my rule about giving 5 stars on a first reading. ( )

Verily, one of a rare kind of books that left me markedly wiser upon reading. It offers a wealth of knowledge and insights, but unlike so many other facts, trivia and numbers overloaded volumes, it manages to weave it all into a coherent narrative. A narrative that for me made more sense explaining the food chain than tens of business magazines, "theendoffoods" and other pundits put together. It took me several months to digest it, as sometime it goes a bit slowly, and I was distracted to other titles, which I needed for my research, but I always turned back to it. And never regret.

"Like" is a strange term for a book such as this. Learned a lot might be more appropriate.

The North American industrial food system is seriously broken, but we're too blinkered to notice. Until we're willing to open up our wallets a bit more and make the effort, we're going to be fed the sewage that we deserve. Yes, good and nutritious food is more expensive. But, when you take into account the fact that most of the world spends 20% or more of their income for food, where we spend less than 5%, you can see that there's an awful lot of wiggle room.

Find a local farmer and buy your meat and eggs from them. It will cost you a bit more than at the local supermarket, but the taste, quality and nutrition more than makes up for it. ( )

But for Pollan, the final outcome is less important than the meal's journey from the soil to the plate. His supermeticulous reporting is the book's strength — you're not likely to get a better explanation of exactly where your food comes from.
