The Omnivore S Dilemma


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

One of the New York Times Book Review's Ten Best Books of the Year Winner of the James Beard Award Author of #1 New York Times Bestsellers In Defense of Food and Food Rules What should we have for dinner? Ten years ago, Michael Pollan confronted us with this seemingly simple question and, with The Omnivore’s Dilemma, his brilliant and eye-opening exploration of our food choices, demonstrated that how we answer it today may determine not only our health but our survival as a species. In the years since, Pollan’s revolutionary examination has changed the way Americans think about food. Bringing wide attention to the little-known but vitally important dimensions of food and agriculture in America, Pollan launched a national conversation about what we eat and the profound consequences that even the simplest everyday food choices have on both ourselves and the natural world. Ten years later, The Omnivore’s Dilemma continues to transform the way Americans think about the politics, perils, and pleasures of eating. From the Trade Paperback edition.

A Natural History of Four Meals The question of what to eat for dinner has become more complicated than ever. In the 21st century, we are faced with what anthropologists call, the omnivore’s dilemma. Back in the hunter-gatherer days, humans had to learn what was safe and what wasn’t. For example, we now know which mushrooms to avoid and which berries we can enjoy. Now with the evergrowing fast-food industry, we once again have to worry about which tasty foods might kill us. As you stroll the shelves of the supermarket, you are met with countless foods, all of which have different nutritional values. How do you know what to choose? What should you avoid? Should we be spending more on food? Or less? Even more, we’ve also begun to realize that our food choices affect more than just our health, they also affect the health of the environment. What we put into our bodies affects more than we realize, and we are only just beginning to recognize the profound consequences of our simple everyday food choices. So if you’re looking for a fresh perspective on the ordinary question, “What should we have for dinner?” then The Omnivore’s Dilemma is for you.
