The American Diet
In case you missed it... The New York Times Magazine had a great article last week about the problems with the American diet. "Unhappy Meals" covers everything from the history of nutritionism to the reactionary tactics of the food industry to how the soil has been affected by modern agriculture to poor Americans' confusion about what in the heck we are supposed to eat to stay healthy. It's a long article, but set aside some time for it cuz it's full of interesting info.
