In Defense of Food

I've been reading this book over the past week and am loving it. I wanted to share with you my favorite quote from it, so far.

No doubt we can look forward to a qualified health claim for high-fructose corn syrup, a tablespoon of which probably does contribute to your health- as long as it replaces a comparable amount of, say, poison in your diet and doesn't increase the total number of calories you eat in a day.

Thank you Michael Pollan for your honesty, and giving me a great laugh! :-)
If you are interested in food, how it is produced, marketed, etc then you will love this book. If you are skeptical about lipid hypothesis and the western low-fat diet then I really encourage you to read it!
