Descripción

What shall we have for dinner? Such a simple question has grown to have a very complicated answer. We can eat almost anything nature has to offer, but deciding what we should eat stirs anxiety. Should we choose the organic apple or the conventional? If organic, local or imported? Wild fish or farmed? Low-carb or low-cal? As the American culture of fast food and unlimited choice invades the world, Pollan follows his next meal from land to table, tracing the origin of everything consumed and the implications for ourselves and our planet. His astonishing findings will shock all who care about what they put on their plate.

Review quote

'Beautifully written and shocking investigation of what slips into the swelling American stomach ... entertaining and eloquent' * Daily Telegraph * 'This is one of the most thought-provoking books I've read in a while ... After you read this book there will be things you don't want to eat, ever again ... An honest, brilliant, troubling book. I recommend it to anyone' * Evening Standard * 'Convivial, creative and deeply disturbing, though he does offer hope ... it has certainly changed the way I think about food' * Audrey Niffenegger, Guardian * 'On our we-need-to-know-this reading list ... a patient investigation of his nation's calorie industries' * Mail on Sunday *
