The Omnivore's Dilemma

Michael Pollan × 7 Summary review ☆ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB × Michael Pollan characters The Omnivore's Dilemma O the uestion 'what shall we have for dinner' It follows each food chain tracing the provenan. I love food I really love food I believe it is one of the most fascinating cultural facts in our lives I particularly love food that is taken as meals and then the words that gather about meals not least that most beautiful word sharing Because food is never better than when it is shared as ours Recently I was delighted to learn the etymology of the word companion That has become my favourite way to describe the people I m fond of The word comes from Latin and means with bread that is someone you share bread with Isn t that the most beautiful of metaphorsThen again there is food and then there is food and this is a book about all of the various types of food available to us in this modern world of ours It is a book that has made me think about what I eat how I eat it and to uestion what can only be called the morality of food And then it also made me think of the psychology of food and the sociology of food in ways I really didn t expectThe book reminded me of many other books It reminded me of Fast Food Nation but I think I enjoyed this which is really saying something It reminded me of Orion s Legacy too and not just because of the hunting stuff towards the end This guy is so engaging and interesting And like any good meal there are general themes and flavours but also many tasty asides This book is structured around four meals Before bringing us to the table for each of these meals he explains how the food got to the table too The four meals are related to the various ways food is obtained in our modern world Naturally the first is industrial farming and the first meal is a McDonald s hamburger eaten in a car that is being driven at 60 miles an hour Did you know that one in five meals eaten in America are eaten in a car Isn t that the saddest statistic you have heard todayRecently I ve been reading books about economics which have turned out to be very much in favour of free market economics Essentially they have told the story of how any interference in the operation of free markets is anathema and that the damnation thus brought about by this interference is found in the distortions that invariably cause harm to what they initially sought to protect The story of corn farming in the USA is a horribly vivid illustration of the effects of the interference in the operation of market forces leading to grotesue distortions which achieve the opposite of this interference s original intent Industrial production of corn using fossil fuel fertilisers so that the corn can be either turned into sugar to create rivers of soft drinks or chaff to feed cows in ways nature never intended is than just morally uestionable The lives of these cows are an unspeakable torture made no less so by the fact we have short circuited their lives to a mere 14 months These animals don t normally eat corn and the descriptions of their sufferings when they are forced to is both repulsive and infuriating If you don t come away from reading this section thinking Not in my name I can only say you are totally lacking in compassion This is an industry that could hardly make itself less sustainable It is clear that it needs to be changed in fact it needs to be done away withWhat I liked most about this book was that it didn t then say organic is best buy organic which is what I thought was coming In fact he spends a lot of time talking about how organic food isn t necessarily environmentally friendly food I am one of those dags oh Australian slang it actually means the shit that gets caught in the wool around a sheep s arse but has come to mean someone who is a bit naff for my English friends and dorky for my American ones who buys free range eggs not because I think they taste any better I m sure they don t but because I can t bring myself to eat eggs from chickens that have been treated so appallingly When I didn t think about it everything was fine but once I did think about it I would rather pay the extra dollar or two so as to be able to enjoy the eggs and not feel like a Nazi prison guard Some of what he says here about free range chickens is also disturbing and the phrase false advertising comes to mindHowever his description of pastoral food is a pure delight and possibly worth reading all on its own if you are in a hurry and don t want to read the whole book You know if you are after the fast food version Sustainable thoughtful inspiring this really is the heart of the lesson of this book and was nearly enough to make me want to go off and start a farm It also contains what is for me the saddest line in the book about the A grade students in the countryside being stolen from the farms and the D grade students being left behind to be exploited by the clever people from Wall Street and to donate lots of money to televangelists The sad fact is that I found this sad mostly because it confirms so many of my prejudices about those who live in rural areas it is not hard to see why Marx proposed the mass industrialisation of agriculture It was the only way he could imagine of dragging these poor souls out of the horrendous world of ignorance and fear that clungs to them like the mud that sticks to their bootsI think many people may feel this book looses its way towards the end particularly where he goes off to hunt and gather his own food to prepare his final meal That is what I thought as this part started At least until he got into his stride which as always did not take very long The stuff he has to say about mushrooms for instance is utterly fascinating I had no idea that we know so little about mushrooms In fact our ignorance of mushrooms seems uite staggering Pollan handles those on the lunar end of the fungus world lunar in both the figurative and literal senses of the word with a deftness and wit that is a pure joy If you are thinking of picking the eyes out of this book then this section is another must readThere are very few pleasures in life that are human than preparing a meal for the people you love At least twice in this book he mentions Freud and sex and suggests that Freud could have better based his ideas on desire for food I suspect that today we are not nearly as stuffed up about sex as we are about food I learnt an awful lot from this book and had a really nice time with the author as he taught me these things he is a very clever man and an engaging writer If I had lots time on my hands I would like to write an Australian version of this book about where our food comes from and the costs of the inputs into producing it I would also if I had lots and lots time like to spend some time learning how to find field mushrooms and to learn about what makes these remarkable creatures tick Did you know that fungi are closely related to animals than to plantsAnd the dilemma Well actually there are many many dilemmas between industrial and sustainable food between eating new things and eating what you know between conscious eating and wilful blindness This book didn t make the writer a vegetarian and it didn t make me one either but I did come away from this book wanting to be aware of what I eat and what the choices I make when deciding what to eat meanIf you want to learn about the real eating disorder affecting the world this really is a book for you The Innocence of the Eye A Filmmaker's Guide it The Disappearance of Anna Popov is

Michael Pollan × 7 Summary review ☆ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB × Michael Pollan characters The Omnivore's Dilemma Providing an exploration of the American food industry this book brings a fresh perspective t. Michael Pollan is a journalist and an omnivore curious about where the food he puts in his mouth comes from In the book he follows four meals from the very beginning of the food chain to his plate What he finds is that the food we put in our mouths turns out to be a big decision a moral political and environmental onePart One CORNThe discussion begins with CORN Part one of this book is shocking I knew corn was the main crop grown in America and that farmers growing it are in big trouble reuiring government subsidies just to stay afloat but Michael Pollan unravels how it got to that point After leaving the farm most of the corn finds its way to the Confined Animal Feeding Operation CAFO where it is fed to cows pigs chicken turkey and now even fish This is problematic due to the fact that cows aren t built to eat corn They eat grass This unnatural diet leads to various health problems for the cow that must be countered with a cocktail of antibiotics and hormones creating health problems for us He follows the corn from the field to the supermarket where it now infiltrates virtually every processed food on the shelf I had no idea that corn is broken down and recombined into hundreds of different forms most notably oils high fructose corn syrup and xantham gum never knew what the hell that was Just take a look at the food label of any processed food and your probably eating some scientific form of that kernel of corn He followed the corn all the way to his meal at McDonald s Between Pollan his wife and his son they packed in 4510 calories for lunch The items that contained the highest proportion of corn turned out to be the soda 100% milk shake 78% salad dressing 65% chicken nuggets 56% cheeseburger 52% and french fries 23% And we thought we were eating such a varied diet As Pollan points out we are simply industrialized eaters surviving on corn Part 2 GRASSPart two focuses on the organic movement Everyone thinks they re making a wonderful decision to eat organic and in one sense they are saving the soil from all of the synthetic fertilizers and pesticides although some crazy stuff is still allowed under US organic laws There are the obvious health benefits of not ingesting those things The dark side is that the bag of Earthbound Farms baby lettuce mix you just bought traveled 3000 miles in refrigerated trucks using untold amounts of energy Organic started out as a local movement but as demands increased it was forced to industrialize Supermarkets don t want to deal with several smaller local organic farmers They want one large buyer to stock all their produce needs Big Organic is now a 350 million dollar businessMeet Rosie the organic free range chickenThe lesson taken away from Rosie is beware of food labels that state things like free range or cage free These are really meaningless statements placed on packaging in an attempt to lessen the guilt of consumers that have informed themselves about the horrors of industrial factory farming Michael Pollan tracked down Rosie and it turns out that she isn t out wandering in a field of grass She s in a long indoor structure confined with twenty thousand birds for the first five weeks of her life When they open the doors at either end after the first five weeks the birds habits have been set in place they feel no need to take a chance out in the unknown which turns out to be a small fenced in patch of grass that could never support all of the birds inside As Pollan puts it free range turns out to be not so much a lifestyle for these chickens as a two week vacation optionPollan then visits Polyface Farm just outside of Charlottesville VA where Joel Salatin raises cows pigs chickens turkeys and even rabbits in harmony with the animals natural instincts It is the true definition of symbiosis where each species depends on the others and all depend on the grass Salatin manages all of this using rotational grazing techniues The cows come through first then the chickens The animals are moved on a daily basis to prevent overgrazing and to allow the proper spreading of the animals droppings which in turn nourish the soil and grasses He slaughters the chickens on site in the open air where any of his costumers can watch and see where their food really comes from Compare this to the CAFOs where the killing stations are off limits to all observers What s going on behind those walls Polyface cows and pigs have to be sent off site due to USDA regulations People drive from all over to buy his clean food and restaurants in Charlottesville proudly read Polyface Farm chickens on their menus They give a variety of reasons when asked why they come all the way to buy Salatin s food I just don t trust the meat in the supermarket anyYou re not going to find fresher chickens anywhereI drive 150 miles one way in order to get clean meat for my familyIt actually tastes like chickenOh those beautiful eggs The difference is night and day the color the richness the fat contentIt is the alliance between the producer and the consumer The consumers can look the farmer in the eyes and see that the food is produced with care and without chemicals They are also keeping the moeny in the community by supporting local farmersPart 3 The ForestHis final meal is from ingredients derived from Pollan s owe efforts through hunting and gathering He realizes this is an unrealistic option in terms of our daily eating but he wants to undergo this experiment to bring him closer to the food he eats After hunting wild boar gathering mushrooms from the forest collecting cherries from a tree in the neighborhood he discovers what is for him the perfect meal Why perfect His meal would not have been possible without the number of people that helped him in his hunting and gathering endeavours It was an open food chain He knew where all the ingredients came from and their were no hidden costs A meal that is eaten in full consciousness of what it took to make it is worth preparing every now and again if only as a way to remind us of the true costs of the things we take for grantedThe bottom lineWhat are we eatingWhere did it come fromHow did it make it to our tableWhat is the true cost politically environmentally ethically and in terms of the public health Complications A Surgeon's Notes on an Imperfect Science industry this book brings a fresh perspective t. Michael Pollan Rumpelstiltskin is a journalist and an omnivore curious about where the food he puts An Angel for You in his mouth comes from In the book he follows four meals from the very beginning
