Food systems

May 4, 2003

Michael Pollan, who I’ve quoted before (he wrote the searing indictment of corn subsidies last year), has an article in today’s NY Times Magazine. The Futures of Food tells about the food science industry and its continued attempts to get us to eat more of their products, and, as it were, less real food. I’ve been eating more and more organic fresh fruits and vegetables, and believe it or not less chocolate, and Pollan’s article encourages me to continue this. What do you think about processed foods, fast food and the “meal in a pill”?
