Pollan preaches the truth

Will anyone listen to Michael Pollan, author of The Omnivore's Dilemma?

Not congress. Despite his pleas and well educated research congress has passed another consumer non-friendly bill.

The FARM BILL!!!

A few years ago, an obesity researcher at the University of Washington named Adam Drewnowski ventured into the supermarket to solve a mystery. He wanted to figure out why it is that the most reliable predictor of obesity in America today is a person’s wealth. For most of history, after all, the poor have typically suffered from a shortage of calories, not a surfeit. So how is it that today the people with the least amount of money to spend on food are the ones most likely to be overweight? - Michael Pollan
