In Defense of Food: An Eater's Manifesto - Michael Pollan

Author of The Omnivore's Dilemma and Cooked, Pollan provides readers with key information regarding the gap between true, proper nutrition and the manipulation of various factories and administrations. Pollan explains the evolution of nutrition in the U.S., and the obsession over what is misconceived as "healthy." He radically challenges that which many of us have come to accept unquestioningly, and highlights the truth behind many of our favorite food staples across the country. Pollan addresses the popularity of fads such as low-fat or low-carb diets, and confronts the long-held stereotypes regarding what is truly beneficial to the body.
