What to Eat

这本书信息量太大了. 其实我大概是去年九月份开始看的, 看到今年十月份, 勉强算翻完了吧. 完全消化不了那么多信息.

主 要讲的是和事物有关的各种issues. 结构也很有意思. 里面的章节是按照grocery store里面的department来分的. 比方说diary products一章, oil一章, seafood一章等等. 总的point, Michael Pollan也曾经强调过很多次, 就是尽量不要去吃processed food. 从grocery store角度讲, 就是买它们沿墙那一圈儿的东西, 不要去center ailes买东西.

各个章节都是详细的论述和本章食品有关的各种问题. 比方说seafood, 就会谈一谈omega 3究竟有没有健康效应, 究竟哪些鱼或者其他食物会有比较多的omega 3. 同样的也会谈一谈mercury的问题. 它究竟是怎么回事, 哪些鱼要避免, 为什么政府发布的鱼表会没有albacore tuna, 其实是水银含量最多的. 还有环保问题. chilean seabass是典型, 大家大捞一气, 才发现原来这个鱼要花五十年才能长这么大, 现在remaining chilean seabass stock已经基本上被depleted了. 还有这个鱼原来叫patagonia toothfish, 根本没人买. 改了名字, 立刻变成了畅销鱼.

以上只是一个例子, 每一章都是这个样子的. 因为这本书看的时间比较长, 大家看到我在看这个反应是非常不一样的. 大多数人都很puzzled, why are you reading about what to eat. Just eat whatever you want. 还有说i will never read such a book的. 其实关于food的issues实在太多了, 从营养, 到健康, 到环保, 到社会正义, 再掺上些自然, 历史, 农业政治, 可以讲的事情实在是太太太多了.  我经常觉得非常overwhelming, 所以肯定还会继续看下去的. 哈.
