One of the most terrifying facts in the article was this:
a system that in 1940 produced 2.3 calories of food energy for every calorie of fossil-fuel energy it used into one that now takes 10 calories of fossil-fuel energy to produce a single calorie of modern supermarket food
At any rate as Pollan said:
If I could say it in 2 pages I wouldn't have used 8000 words.
I encourage people to read the article and think a bit more about the food they buy.
