In Defense of Food

Michael Pollan

Overview

If you gave your great-grandma your breakfast, would she recognize it as food? If your answer is, "probably not," you should talk to Michael Pollan. In The Omnivore's Dilemma, he explained how the explosion of corn supply has led to a paradoxical amount of food choices, and how we can make far better ones by simply buying from what's locally available to us.

With In Defense of Food, he takes it one step further, debunking the entire science of nutritionism. He'll show you how the construct on which the modern, Western diet is based is a very shaky one at best, why it's done nothing for our health, and how to return to an actual culture of food.
