Having taken my share of carbon from the world and packing it into my sizable body, my brother-in-law Jason recently recommended I read The Omnivore's Dilemma
by Michael Pollan
. To say it may change the way I think about food is an understatement. I am one of those people that takes a hobby or cause to a new level and make the term "type A personality" seem soft, but this is one mission I believe I may make a permanent one. Thanks for the recommendation Jason!
The first section on the book will do two things for you. It will make you never look at food again without seeing an ear of corn, and it may cause you to want to buy stock in ADM (Cargill is private). That said, investing in the problem is not quite the proper solution, so I recommend invest in yourself and the environment by picking up a copy of the book. See what it does for you. My family will never believe it, but I actually bought organic eggs and milk this week!
