What I loved about both is that they don’t fear monger (although the trailer in the link above makes it look like the movie does). Instead they educate, and in the book Pollan asks very important questions even of himself and his own beliefs.
But now the real question is will I change any of my food choices. I sure want to. Pollan doesn’t ask you to make any changes, but if you read the book and don’t come away thinking about potential change, I’d venture to say you’re not human.
I’ve already made some changes and in our society it can be hard. A few months back in an attempt to cut back on processed food, I stopped buying cereal. But then I ate more eggs and oatmeal—oatmeal that is process and comes out of a box.
