Frankly, if you're not used to the writing of Michael Pollan, you'll be surprised by the opening salvos, as he takes on the "religion of nutritionism," the food industry, the food lobbyists, the nutrition scientists and the US Government. Be frank, Michael, what do you really think? He tells us! I find myself a little embarrassed, as he discusses the bias and political maneuvers that form our current "understanding" of nutrition. Why am I embarrassed? Because I bought a lot of this stuff, myself.
Actually, Mr. Pollan teaches us what we already knew, and our parents, grandparents and other ancestors before us. "Eat food, not too much, mostly plants." He shows us that true nutrition is not gained from chasing the latest fad nutrient or by avoiding the latest villain nutrient, but by eating whole, natural foods in the right balance. The book is highly entertaining and educational. I hope you'll join us as we review the book, chapter-by-chapter, you can read along if you want, by getting your own copy of In Defense Of Food, An Eater's Manifesto.
