'A must-read ... satisfying, rich ... loaded with flavour' Sunday Telegraph This book is a celebration of food. By food, Michael Pollan means real, proper, simple food - not the kind that comes in a packet, or has lists of unpronounceable ingredients, or that makes nutritional claims about how healthy it is. More like the kind of food your great-grandmother would recognize. In Defence of Food is a simple invitation to junk the science, ditch the diet and instead rediscover the joys of eating well. By following a few pieces of advice (Eat at a table - a desk doesn't count. Don't buy food where you'd buy your petrol!), you will enrich your life and your palate, and enlarge your sense of what it means to be healthy and happy. It's time to fall in love with food again. For the past twenty years, Michael Pollan has been writing about the places where the human and natural worlds intersect: food, agriculture, gardens, drugs, and architecture. His most recent book, about the ethics and ecology of eating, is The Omnivore's Dilemma, named one of the ten best books of 2006 by the New York Times and the Washington Post. He is also the author of The Botany of Desire, A Place of My Own and Second Nature.

Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants These simple words get to the heart of Michael Pollan's In Defence of Food. Humans used to know how to eat well, but the balanced dietary lessons that were once passed down through the generations have become confused, complicated and distorted by food industry marketers, nutritional scientists and journalists, all of whom have much to gain from our dietary confusion. As a result we face today a complex culinary landscape dense with bad advice and foods that are not 'real' These 'edible food-like substances' are often packaged with labels bearing health claims that are typically false and misleading. Indeed, real food is fast disappearing from the marketplace, to be replaced by 'nutrients', and plain old eating has been replaced by an obsession with nutrition that is, paradoxically, ruining our health, not to mention our meals. It seems that we have forgotten about the sheer pleasure that can come from eating simple, healthy and, most importantly, real food. Michael Pollan's last book, The Omnivore's Dilemma, is currently an extraordinary American bestseller, which for hundreds of thousands of people has shown just how badly wrong the food industry has gone. In Defence of Food is his practical call to action - a bracing and eloquent manifesto that will enrich our lives and our palates, and enlarge our sense of what it means to be healthy and happy.

It has become popular to blame the American obesity epidemic and many other health-related problems on processed food. Many of these criticisms are valid for some processed-food items, but many statements are overgeneralizations that unfairly target a wide range products that contribute to our health and well-being. In addition, many of the proposed dangers allegedly posed by eating processed food are exaggerations based on highly selective views of experimental studies. We crave simple answers to our questions about food, but the science behind the proclamations of food pundits is not nearly as clear as they would have you believe. This book presents a more nuanced view of the benefits and limitations of food processing and exposes some of the tricks both Big Food and its critics use to manipulate us to adopt their point of view. Food is a source of enjoyment, a part of our cultural heritage, a vital ingredient in maintaining health, and an expression of personal choice. We need to make those choices based on credible information and not be beguiled by the sophisticated marketing tools of Big Food nor the ideological appeals and gut feelings of self-appointed food gurus who have little or no background in nutrition.
