A very long article by Michael Pollan but is worth reading if you want to understand the complexities of our food system. It involves the “elephant in the room” consisting of Covid -19 that exposes the interrelated factors associated with our our current food system and health care costs. Based on this essay, our “diets may be killing us” as a few recent articles have suggested. Click the link below or find it on the Website of Michael Pollan of (“eat food, not too much, mostly plants” fame).
A quote from Forbes, May 12, 2000 in an article from Nav Athwal sums it up:
“One thing the coronavirus pandemic has taught us is the level of control we have over our lives is not as great as we think. Whether it be our ability to be mobile, our ability to meet with friends or the food we eat and how we eat it, the conveniences we took for granted not long ago are luxuries in a post-coronavirus world.”
Any suggestions for a solution?
