In its most basic form, food = nutrition. In other words, “you are what you eat” isn’t just an overly-used phrase; it’s a truth. With endless articles and claims about what is and is not “healthy” (whatever that word actually means), it’s hard to find concrete answers.
This semester, my friend and roommate, Hilary Zander, aims to critique our current food system. She will delve into scientific literature with a focus on environmental health impacts of organic food.
Check out her blog, “If you are ever in the mood to read about the heinous effects of high fructose corn syrup, transnational food companies and our maladapted genomes” (in her words).
