What should we have for dinner? When you can eat just about anything nature (or the supermarket) has to offer, deciding what you should eat will inevitably stir anxiety, especially when some of the foods might shorten your life. Today, buffeted by one food fad after another, America is suffering from a national eating disorder. As the cornucopia of the modern American supermarket and fast food outlet confronts us with a bewildering and treacherous landscape, what's at stake becomes not only our own and our children's health, but the health of the environment that sustains life on earth. Pollan follows each of the food chains--industrial food, organic or alternative food, and food we forage ourselves--from the source to the final meal, always emphasizing our coevolutionary relationship with the handful of plant and animal species we depend on. The surprising answers Pollan offers have profound political, economic, psychological, and even moral implications for all of us.--From publisher description.… (lisätietoja)

The Omnivore's Dilemma: A Natural History of Four Meals (tekijä: Michael Pollan) (2006)

  1. 120
    Oikean ruoan puolesta (tekijä: Michael Pollan) (marzipanz, chrisharpe)
    chrisharpe: Less of a narrative than "The Omnivore's Dilemma", "In Defense of Food" is a succinct argument for considering what we eat, and includes potted advice for consumers who prefer a set of simple rules for eating. As the title suggests, this is perhaps the better analysis of the way the food industry affects the eater and what we can do about it.… (lisätietoja)

Especially good on apples. Always like Michael Pollan.

I learned so much from this book and I want everyone to read it. ( )

I’m plagiarizing Emily’s review, but as she said, the quote from the end of the book does summarize the whole thing quite nicely - "But imagine for a moment if we once again knew...these few unremarkable things: What it is we're eating. Where it came from. How it found its way to our table. And what, in a true accounting, it really cost."

It isn’t an easy subject to write about and keep interesting, but the author did a good job of it. We all have to eat, and rarely think much about how the food got to us. And as a city kid, I found I learned a lot about the cattle and feed industry, farm subsidies, and the big business of farming. It was a much more interesting read than I expected.

Non-fiction. Made me obsessed with corn/corn products for a while (nearly everything we eat contains corn in some form or other). Loads of interesting information about our food processing chains. A worthwhile read, even if it took me several months to actually get through it. ( )
  reader1009 | Jul 3, 2021 |
this was super interesting although there were some parts that were a bit slow for me. still, i found this really thoughtful, and in a way that both impressed me and made me think. he shared his feelings about the things he was learning - about the world and about himself - and it was refreshing and helpful to me to read him go through those thoughts.

as a vegetarian for over 25 years, i never thought i'd say this, but based on what i read here, it would actually be better to eat meat if it was grown humanely in environmentally sound ways in a nearby area. or to be a vegetarian locavore (although the former is probably better for the land if it's done right). i was really surprised to learn that, that the virginia farm he highlights (joel salatin's polyface farm) is better on all measurable metrics, even though they kill animals, than shipping in vegetables and fruits from all over the world. yes, they still kill animals, and that part wasn't flawless. and i have no plans to eat those animals. but i can see how it is more ok - much more ok - than i thought, and part of a system that is good for so many things, including the earth. it was also really brought home that it's actually the animals used for vegetarian purposes that are treated the worst - cows used for dairy and chickens used for eggs fare worse during their lives than cows and chickens used for their meat. i'm going to need to make a shift.

reading this at the same time as i listened to how to resist amazon and why and soon enough after fast food nation and and the band played on i'm really starting to realize what all of these books are telling us. any industry or corporation that gets too big and too powerful and that has too much sway over the government is dangerous and will not have our best interests at heart. we just can't trust this industry to do the right thing - right for us, for the animals, for the earth.

"The milk and cheese and yogurt, which once came from dairy cows that grazed on grass, now typically come from Holsteins that spend their working lives indoors tethered to machines, eating corn."

"Though we insist on speaking of the 'invention' of agriculture as if it were our idea, like double-entry bookkeeping or the lightbulb, in fact it makes just as much sense to regard agriculture as a brilliant (if unconscious) evolutionary strategy on the part of the plants and animals involved to get us to advance their interests. By evolving certain traits we happen to read as desirable, these species got themselves noticed by the one mammal in a position not only to spread their genes around the world, but to remake vast swaths of that world in the image of the plants' preferred habitat. No other group of species gained more from its association with humans than the edible grasses...."

"The short, unhappy life of a corn-fed feedlot steer represents the ultimate triumph of industrial thinking over the logic of evolution,"

"Most of the antibiotics sold in America today end up in animal feed, a practice that, it is now generally acknowledged (except in agriculture), is leading directly to the evolution of new antibiotic-resistant superbugs. In the debate over the use of antibiotics in agriculture, a distinction is usually made between their clinical and nonclinical uses. Public health advocates don't object to treating sick animals with antibiotics; they just don't want to see the drugs lose their effectiveness because factory farms are feeding them to healthy animals to promote growth. But the use of antibiotics in feedlot cattle confounds this distinction. Here the drugs are plainly being used to treat sick animals, yet the animals probably wouldn't be sick if not for the diet of grain we feed them."

"the source of most fast-food beef" is "burned-out old dairy cow[s.]"

"It isn't hard to see why there isn't much institutional support for the sort of low-capital, thought-intensive farming Joel Salatin practices: He buys next to nothing. When a livestock farmer is willing to 'practice complexity' -- to choreograph the symbiosis of several different animals, each of which has been allowed to behave and eat as it evolved to -- he will find he has little need for machinery, fertilizer, and, more strikingly, chemicals. He finds he has no sanitation problem or any of the diseases that result from raising a single animal in a crowded monoculture and then feeding it things it wasn't designed to eat. This is perhaps the greatest efficiency of a farm treated as a biological system: health."

"As long as one egg looks pretty much like another, all the chickens like chicken, and beef beef, the substitute of quantity for quality will go on unnoticed by most consumers, but it is becoming increasingly apparent to anyone with an electron microscope or a mass spectrometer that, truly, this is not the same food."

he mentions these writers/philosophers on vegetarianism/ethics that might be worth reading one day: Tom Regan, James Rachels, Jeremy Bentham, Steven M Wise, Joy Williams, Matthew Scully, Peter Singer ( )

But for Pollan, the final outcome is less important than the meal's journey from the soil to the plate. His supermeticulous reporting is the book's strength — you're not likely to get a better explanation of exactly where your food comes from.
