Speak Out About Food and Health

"Cook", says Michael Pollan. It's the easiest way to tell Big Food you aren't interested in their junk. The amount of time we spend in our own kitchens has fallen by 40 percent since 1965, Pollan writes in his new book, Cooked: A Natural History of Transformation.

Pollan examines how Americans spend time in front of TVs and computers, "outsourcing," as he puts it, the job of cooking to corporations and restaurants. The result? A serious obesity problem and an industrial agriculture system reliant upon unsustainable methods. What can we do to get healthy and take food back into our own hands? COOK!
