Pollan's food agenda

Michael Pollan's food agenda was recently published in NYT. It says we need to put the food system 'back on sunlight'.

The obvious question how to achieve this individually right now is conveniently answered in his latest book, In Defense of Food:
  • Eat food.
  • Not too much.
  • Mostly plants.
From whom does real, well-grown and unprocessed food need defending? According to Pollan, from the industry and science. Both stand to gain much from widespread confusion about what to eat. 

Fortunately, we can easily relearn which foods are healthy for us and the environment. We can get back on a 'diet of sunshine' and stop wasting fossil fuel.
