Why eating became such a scary thing

According to Michael Pollan, journalist and author best known for his recent success “The Omnivore’s Dilemma,” here’s what happens when you start trying to understand the connection between “health” and “food”: “Before long, a dense cloud bank of confusion moves in.

Sooner or later, everything solid you thought you knew about the links between diet and health gets blown away in the gust of the latest study.” (That’s from “Unhappy Meals,” a piece Pollan published in The New York Times Magazine last year).
