Reviews of The Omnivore’s Dilemma
1. Rating 5/5
This is an exceptionally interesting book – all around considered and investigated. I am not sure that I need to consume meat again as Pollan tells the peruser how these feeder part cows, pigs, and chickens live amazing. Truly, not my concept of accommodating. Just as interesting is his investigation of corn. It is stunning how corn is in absolutely everything from high-fructose corn syrup to fish nourishment; gasoline to paint; fish to …. indeed, you get the thought. While increasingly more real estate is dedicated to mono-crops, predominantly corn, we are the “benefactors” of everything that is corn related.
Feedlot steers are sustained corn to fill them out although it makes them sick and reduces the number of significant nutrients accessible to grass-bolstered cows. Increase that by sheep, chicken, goat, salmon, tilapia, shrimp and you get a thought of why you are eating corn at each feast whether you know it or not. Intensify this with the way that 3 companies control the corn item from seed to the pesticide to compost and this monoculture is there to get you somehow. However, It makes you wonder what you are eating. At any rate, Pollan has made a magnificent showing investigating the evolved way of life and its impact on nature be it our inside greenery or life on earth.
2. Rating 4.5/5
A mind-opening voyage through some parts of the so-called nourishment system. The parts on cultivating, the evils of monoculture, the significance of grass, were especially illuminating. I don’t typically eat meat and I would decrease the admission considerably more.
The most shocking part for me was the ‘pastoral natural’ disclosure. I wonder if the natural products sold in Indonesia as are terrible as the greenwashed examples in this book, which are about the US showcase.
The later parts of the book – chasing and cooking – were not as interesting for me as the previous parts. Thus the four stars. Still, a fascinating read and profoundly prescribed to everybody.
Inside this book:
INTRODUCTION OUR NATIONAL EATING DISORDER
What should we have for dinner? This book is a long and fairly involved answer to this seemingly simple question. Along the way, it also tries to figure out how such a simple question could ever have gotten so complicated. As a culture, we seem to have arrived at a place where whatever native wisdom we may once have possessed about eating has been replaced by confusion and anxiety. Somehow this most elemental of activities—figuring out what to eat—has come to require a remarkable amount of expert help.
How did we ever get to a point where we need investigative journalists to tell us where our food comes from and nutritionists to determine the dinner menu? For me, the absurdity of the situation became inescapable in the fall of 2002 when one of the most ancient and venerable staples of human life abruptly disappeared from the American dinner table. I’m talking of course about bread. Virtually overnight, Americans changed the way they eat.
That was when, in 1977, a Senate committee had issued a set of “dietary goals” warning beef-loving Americans to lay off the red meat. And so we dutifully had done, until now. What set off the sea change? It appears to have been a perfect media storm of diet books, scientific studies, and one timely magazine article. The new diet books, many of them inspired by the formerly discredited Dr. Robert C. Atkins, brought Americans the welcome news that they could eat more meat and lose weight just so long as they laid off the bread and pasta. ,
These high-protein, low-carb diets found support in a handful of new epidemiological studies suggesting that the nutritional orthodoxy that had held sway in America since the 1970s might be wrong. It was not, as official opinion claimed, the fat that made us fat, but the carbohydrates we’d been eating precisely to stay slim.
