Check out Elephant Journal's interview with Michael Pollan, author of the best seller The Omnivore's Dilemma (brief excerpt above).

In the interview, Pollan talks about how...

  • the best choices for your health are also the best for environment. 
  • cooking at home is single most important thing people can do -- socially, politically, environmentally.
  • farmers raising chickens organically make more money and increase soil fertility.
  • we've replaced labor on farms with fossil fuel.. fertilizers, equipment and pesticides.
  • Monsanto is promising a future that it cannot deliver with GMO technology, pesticides, and fertilizers.
  • there is good news -- Kathleen Merrigan, a pioneer in organic movement is now running Dept. Agriculture.
The interview has inspired me to pick up the book that's been sitting on my coffee table for too long. It delves into how important our food choices are -- for our health, our environment, and our economy.
