About The Omnivore’s Dilemma: A Natural History of Four Meals
by Michael Pollan:
In the perennial bestseller The Omnivore’s Dilemma,
acclaimed journalist Michael Pollan not only reports back from the frontlines of America’s dysfunctional food industry, but gets down and dirty with the scrappy farmers and foragers who have decided to “opt out” of the industrial food chain.
Informative, entertaining, and often alarming, The Omnivore’s Dilemma
examines dietary trends, the origins of what we eat, and the impact of our food choices on the environment and our health, and sheds desperately needed light on the saying “you are what you eat.”
