In Defense of Food: An Eater's Manifesto

by Michael Pollan May 14, 2010
In Defense of Food: An Eater's Manifesto

Pollan, author of The Botany of Desire and the Omnivore’s Dilemma, has written his most pressing book yet, In Defense of Food. The urgency ofthis well-researched and persuasive book comes from the increasing scientific prevalence of favoring a diet of “nutritionism” over whole foods inthe United States. Pollan wonders why we are suffering from increasing rates of obesity, heart disease, diabetes, cancer and other illnesses in acountry that enjoys such advancement in nutritional science.

Pollan asserts that we are so fixated with vitamins, omega-3 fatty acids, and othernutritional compounds that we eat more processed foods that claim to contain these elements. Instead, he maintains that we should consume foodsthat naturally contain these nutrients. Pollan’s philosophy follows, “Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants.” This book is essential for anyoneconcerned about where our food comes from, how it affects us, and what we can do about it.
