Michael Pollan on Food Traditions

Sckratch

“Traditions survive because they’re adaptive, they’re the result of a kind of cultural selection like natural selection. They survive because they help keep people healthy and happy and to throw them overboard wholesale is very often to lose things that are critical to our well-being.”

– Michael Pollan on ‘Cooked’ the documentary available on Netflix.
