More about Pollan’s book

Today I read part of chapter three, “The Industrialization of Eating.” He goes into the history of white flour, for instance, and explains how choices made because of human weaknesses have combined to weaken the nutritional value of what most of the people are eating today. I also browsed ahead and read his argument for preparing meals from whole natural food, smaller amounts, and enjoying them in a more relaxed family setting.

  1. I found the book on Audible.com and downloaded it. I’m planning to listen to it, as is Steve.

    • I will be interested in your review of the book. His world view makes his “how our eating habits got off track” different from mine. But he has said well what I would have tried to write about the effect of greed and commercialism on nutrition history.
