This is a summary of Michael Pollan's number-one New York Times best seller In Defense of Food: An Eater's Manifesto.
Food. There's plenty of it around, and we all love to eat it. So why should anyone need to defend it? Because in the so-called Western diet, food has been replaced by nutrients and common sense by confusion - most of what we're consuming today is longer a product of nature but of food science. The result is what Michael Pollan calls the American paradox: The more we worry about nutrition, the less healthy we see to become. With In Defense of Food, Pollan proposes a new (and very old) answer to the question of what we should eat that comes down to seven simple but liberating words: "Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants."
