Food as a National Security Issue

I happened to be listening to NPR yesterday when one of my favorite shows came on - Fresh Air with Terry Gross. This was a particularly interesting (to me) show with Terry interviewing Michael Pollan - author of The Omnivore's Dilemma. The show is provocatively titled "Food as a National Security Issue" and it was fascinating.

A professor of science and environmental journalism at University of California at Berkeley, Pollan talks about food as it relates to our use of fossil fuel, a "sun-food" agenda, Argentina's excellent crop rotation - why it works and how we can adopt it, U.S. chickens that are shipped to China to be cut up and sent back to our groceries, and the idea of a White House farmer (much along the lines of what Eleanor Roosevelt did to start the Victory Garden movement in 1943).

Like I said, extremely interesting stuff. Listen to the show here and let me know what you think about this subject and this show...I'd love to hear from you.
