In defence of food

I am currently reading Michael Pollan's 'In defence of food'. If are concerned about what you and your family eat it is required reading. He starts the book with these words 'Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants.' The food is what he calls real food or whole food that has not been tampered with by 'food' scientists. He explains how processed food came about. The reason crap is dressed up as food, why the crap has one nutrient at a time stuck in it. Another statement that stuck was if it makes a chemical claim on the packet avoid it at all costs.

I'm trying to find Gary Taubes' 'Good calories, bad calories'. Unfortunately my library doesn't have it.

Join the movement and we'll start a revolution - stop all unnecessary shopping - seperate your needs from your wants.
