"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.

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.
