Interesting food-related links, by the way:

- article: Michael Pollan, Unhappy Meals (bugmenot :))

- podcast: Deconstructing Dinner

- books:
Michael Pollan, The Omnivore's Dilemma
Upton Sinclair, The Jungle, followed by Eric Schlosser, Fast Food Nation
(The last two I haven't read myself yet, but they are on my list.)

Чего там читать? Ежу понятно, что для maximum health нужно быть raw food vegan, и желательно побольше травы и овощей (орехи и бобовые - умеренно). Я к этому постепенно иду.

Honestly, the links are not about that.

I can't say I agree.
Yet even if you are going that way, you'd probably want, for one, to make a choice about whether you'd want to eat genetically modified food.

Isn't it weird that people got messed with eating (an example would be the 30% or 50% obesity rate in US) after they learned the exact properties/chemicals/vitamines of their food, became obsessed with counting calories, skimming milk, and creating diet pills?

Knowledge should improve things.. but I guess it can't really improve the things that are already perfectly functioning subconsciously; those would better remain that way.

> Knowledge should improve things
Incomplete knowledge paired with greed and various other human qualities is a recipe for disaster :)

Yeah, and don't forget the food additives ;)

dietary fibre
I find it fascinating how little fibre, compared to the recommended daily values, do we appear to be intaking.
