Very interesting article (series of articles really) that asserts that the whole concept of using a "food pyramid" to direct nutrition is bad. Excellent proposal at the end.

Lovely interview that captures Pollan's humanity. The idea of having a booklet of common sense eating rules to counter all the crazy diet junk that's floating around is wonderful, I've ordered my copy to pick up when I get to the US.

"The American way of eating has become the elephant in the room in the debate over health care." -- Michael Pollan on fine form, pointing out the need for joined-up policy. I think this is the big need in both the UK and US - policy thinking that doesn't silo issues but allows them to work together to reduce the costs of the radical change that is essential and inevitable, in health, environment, economics and the rest.

"As Barack Obama ponders whom to pick as agriculture secretary, he should reframe the question. What he needs is actually a bold reformer in a position renamed “secretary of food.” ... today, fewer than 2 percent are farmers. In contrast, 100 percent of Americans eat."

I'd not noticed this anywhere in Obama's platform so it's very promising indeed. Pollan's assertion that corn has taken control of America's diet through the big agro-corporations and is advancing its genetic supremacy by burning fossil fuels is very credible and can only be fixed by executive action if he's right.
