In the ancient days of hunter-gatherers, a wrong food choice could spell demise; a tasty poison mushroom or toxic root could kill the most discriminating omnivore. Today, according to Botany of Desire author Michael Pollan, we face comparable dangers in the midst of plenitude. Pollan notes that Fast-Food America is experiencing what can only be described as a national eating disorder. With compelling precision, he describes how parallel food chains (industrialized food; alternative or "organic" food; and home-gathered food) reflect differences and similarities in our ecology of eating. A fascinating look behind the labels. Now in trade paperback and NOOK Book.
