BOOK LINKS

The Omnivore's Delimma by Micheel Pollen
Pollan is a gardener, a cook and an uncommonly graceful explainer of natural science and he builds his case for a more sustainable diet from a base of intensely personal reporting to a high pitch of urgency in this very enjoyable book.  In Pollen's words "I just want to give people tools to think through their own food choices."
In Defense of Food by Micheel Pollen
Michael Pollan's manifesto itself is deceptively simple: “Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants."  Continuing the thread of his last book, “In Defense of Food," continues his ongoing investigation into what we eat, why we eat it and what's wrong with it.
Appetite For Profit by Michelle Simon
This book is an excellent, informative, “how-to” manual for anyone who wants to stop food companies from marketing junk foods, especially to children. The author exposes what food companies really mean when they say they market responsibly, and how they use trade, professional and, sometimes, government groups to protect sales and attack critics.
