When people ask for my opinion regarding the cause of our current obesity epidemic among American children, my answer? It is a perfect storm of colliding cultural and agribusiness factors.  Nowhere have I seen the whole scenario laid out better than in the New York Times Magazine cover story by Michael Pollan that appeared on January 28, 2007:  The Age of Nutritionism.

The causes may be complex, but according to Pollan, the solution is simple:  Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants.

I couldn't agree more.
