In defense of food : an eater's manifesto( Visual )

4 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 872 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants." These simple words go to the heart of food journalist Pollan's thesis. Humans used to know how to eat well, he argues, but the balanced dietary lessons that were once passed down through generations have been confused and distorted by food industry marketers, nutritional scientists, and journalists.

Pollan's advice is: "Don't eat anything that your great-great grandmother would not recognize as food."
