Michael Pollan article
In January of 2007, Michael Pollan had an article called “Unhappy Meals” in the New York Times–I believe it contains seminal material from his book In Defense of Food: An Eater’s Manifesto. (Which is, in a nutshell, “Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants.” ) It’s a fairly long article, and it details the evolution from food to food science of the past century or so.
It’s a good article! Check it out.
