The politics of food
Do you know what is really in your food? Can you connect what your eating to where it came from? Why are some children today obese yet malnourished? Michael Pollan discusses all of these questions and his best-selling book, The Omnivore’s Dilemma, in the above video. The video does run long, at over an hour, but is well worth the watch if you are wondering why what you eat does matter, not just for your own health, but also the health of the environment we plan to leave our children and grandchildren.
I am going to save my commentary on this one, as we will discuss a variety of these issues in upcoming posts in our, the politics of food series, but my main intent is to get you thinking about where your food comes from and why it matters.
