I agree with you! I'm still listening to the audio version of this book and will probably listen to it a few more times to absorb it all. But Pollan goes far in debunking the popular food myths of today with his own in depth research. I like how he plays his own "devil's advocate" where he makes a presumption based on current reseach evidence, but then looks at the results from several different angles --
We can assume from the research results that X is true, but what about this situation, or that other one? And then there's this other research that says Y is true. So is X really a true reflection of what's actually occuring??
He really makes you think!
