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.… (mere)

    In Defense of Food: An Eater's Manifesto af 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.… (mere)

People put things in their mouths. This has environmental, political and moral ramifications. Never look at food the same way again. ( )
  andy_clark | Dec 31, 2020 |
I liked the first two sections the most. The last one drug on for me, but still a valuable read. ( )
  pmichaud | Dec 21, 2020 |
A great book on the food we eat, and where it comes from. Sometimes it's more than you need or want to know, but it is very interesting. I'm not a big cook or gourmand, but I really enjoyed and learned from the book. ( )
  rendier | Dec 20, 2020 |
Journalist Michael Pollan delves into the powerful forces that determine the food we eat, how it is grown and produced, the disastrous environmental effects, and the way the food industry has changed and been regulated since our grandparents' time. Spoiler: nearly none of the above has citizens' health and best interests at heart.

This is one of those books that I wanted to read, knowing that I might afterward regret it. While I'm grateful to have had my eyes opened with respect to food production in my country, it nevertheless leaves me with feelings of sadness, anger, confusion and hopelessness. Still, you should read this book. Other reviewers were right: you will never look at a cornfield the same way ever again. ( )

Informative and thought-provoking

The subject matter was riveting, the characters introduced were interesting. The writing bringing it all together was a little less straightforward. There were a few too many meandering thoughts that dovetailed away from the main story (I.e. the discussion about whether eating meat was ethical right in the middle of the hunter-gather food chain)

I appreciate how this book moved the discussion about food. However, I wish and I think it could have been a faster read. ( )

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.
