Another Point of View

Not everyone is completely on board with Michael Pollan's "Unhappy Meals" that was in New York Times Sunday Magazine (see yesterday's post). There's an article on Scientific American.com that pokes some holes in Pollan's theories. The author, John Rennie, points out that some vegetables contain levels of carcinogens; something I've never heard before. In the interest of fairness and increased knowledge, it's worth taking a look.

Yet overall, the advice is the same -- less junk, reasonable portions, more fruits and veggies.

If only fat didn't taste so good!
