Michael Pollan on Nutritionism

I frequently like to write off the New York Times (especially since their science articles are overly simplistic, and in many cases simply wrong), but Michael Pollan's book was exceptionally good, and this article is worth reading.

For those who don't have time, here's the quick summary:
  1. Eat food.
  2. Avoid food products bearing health claims
  3. Avoid food with too many ingredients or contain high fructose corn syrup.
  4. Get out of the supermarket
  5. Pay more, eat less
  6. Eat mostly plants
  7. Eat ethnic foods
  8. Cook
  9. Eat like an omnivore
