Pollan - Omnivore's Dilemma - Chapters 5 and 6

Some questions to go on:

What does Pollan mean by the term “industrial eater”? (90) How have we become that “supremely adapted creature”?

What does Pollan mean when he says that “the dream of liberating food from nature is as old as eating”? (90)

Why does Italian food historian Massimo Montanari consider fresh, local and seasonal food to have been — for most of human history — “a form of slavery”? (91)

Pollan says that “Corn sweetener is to the republic of fat what corn whiskey was to the alcoholic republic.” Explain what he means.
(104)

What is Type 2 diabetes? Why would a diet high in refi ned starches and sugars potentially cause the disease? (107)

Pollan claims that if we continue our current agricultural policies, “the cheapest calories in the supermarket will continue to be the
unhealthiest.” How could we change this? If you had to create a farm bill, how would you encourage farmers to change what they
grow?
