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.

💡Learnt A Lot

Невероятно счастлив осилить книгу, дочитал до конца
Уж не знаю, чем было обосновано стремление создать произведение такого объёма, в сокращенном раза в три виде читалось бы легче. Многословно ужасно... Автор очень любит писать про свои чувства, а не про содержание
Для меня английский здесь частенько оказывался сложноват, скорее всего авторская особенность выбирать особые слова
При всём сказанном, очень много интересного, над чем можно и стоит подумать
Рекомендую читать

example, if the sixteen million acres now being used to grow corn to feed cows in the United States became well-managed pasture, that would remove fourteen billion pounds of carbon

The koala doesn’t worry about what to eat: If it looks and smells and tastes like a eucalyptus leaf, it must be dinner. The koala’s culinary preferences are hardwired in its genes. But for omnivores like us (and the rat) a vast amount of brain space and time must be devoted to figuring out which of all the many potential dishes nature lays on are safe to eat.

food chain is a system for passing those calories on to species that lack the plant’s unique ability to synthesize them from sunlight
