Michael Pollan – A Letter Worth Reading

Posted by CMH Gourmand on October 29, 2008

In the previous post – Mark Bittman makes a good argument for changing how we eat.

In the New York Times link below, Michael Pollan (The Omnivore’s Dilemma) spells out some top down shifts in mindset and government policy to help these changes happen.  This is a long read, but worth the investment of time.  It would be wonderful if our government (as well as ourselves) had the will to follow through on many of these ideas. To help this along – we need to pester people in office to place food on the political table, which means cutting a lot of pork.
