    "Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants." These simple words go to the heart of Michael Pollan's In Defense of Food. Humans used to know how to eat well, Pollan argues. But the balanced dietary lessons that were once passed down through generations have been confused, complicated, and distorted by food industry marketers, nutritional scientists, and journalists-all of whom have much to gain from our dietary confusion.

    Where does In Defense of Food rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Getting back to basics is so easy, yet we make it so difficult for ourselves. Great analogies that help keep what is important in the front of your mind. I like the one about if your great grandmother were to read a package's ingredients, would she recognize it as food? Well then it probably isn't. When the soda company suggests that Cherry Cola is a health food because of the antioxidants found in the few drops of real cherry in the vat... you know it has gone too far. We should all read it, and then read it again.
