Michael Pollan on Food

Terry Gross featured Mr. Pollan on Fresh Air yesterday for an absolutely riveting (to me, at least) hour of radio. Everyone should give some thought to where their food comes from.

From NPR:
Fresh Air from WHYY, April 11, 2006 · Journalist Michael Pollan's new book, The Omnivore's Dilemma, follows industrial food, organic food, and food that consumers procure or hunt for themselves, from the source to the dinner plate. It also examines the importance of corn in all of our food products.

Pollan is a professor of science and environmental journalism at University of California at Berkeley. His previous books include The Botany of Desire and A Place of My Own.
The show is also available as a downloadable mp3 at I wish we had a Whole Foods in Grand Rapids.
