In Defense of Food : An Eater's Manifesto (Large Print) (Paperback) (Michael Pollan)
About this item
Journalist Michael Pollan's polemic on the inherent and extensive problems with Western food culture argues that people should "eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants.," by documenting how the rise of nutritional science in the American food industry is actually the cause of high rates of obesity, diabetes, and heart conditions. Pollan eloquently discusses how the Western diet's focus on low-fat, processed foods filled with nutrients pulled from whole foods is the problem, not the solution. Detailing numerous scientific studies, the history of food production, and the food industries carefully played machinations, Pollan unrolls a plan for how Americans can save themselves from a future filled with vitamin-infused soda and processed diet foods.
