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.

    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

Quotes

    In The Hungry SoulLeon Kass calls this the great paradox of eating: “that to preserve their life and form living things necessarily destroy life and form
    Smira Raohas quoted3 years ago
    We butcher, grind, chop, grate, mince, and liquefy raw ingredients, breaking down formerly living things so that we might recombine them in new, more cultivated forms
    Smira Raohas quoted3 years ago
    The Romans called it “usufruct,” which the dictionary defines as “the right to enjoy the use and advantages of another’s property short of the destruction or waste of its substance
