    eBook James McWilliams ´ Just Food eBook µ ´ just ebok, food mobile, Just Food PDFLet me begin this review by saying that the subtitle of this book – Where Locavores Get it Wrong – is a bit misleading Author James McWilliams isn't on a rampage against locavorism per se but rather against overly simplistic solutions to the incredibly comple

    eBook James McWilliams ´ Just Food eBook µ ´ just ebok, food mobile, Just Food PDFIt's a six year old book but still one that goes into a lot of science that many folks don't want to believe even when the science is pretty clear But there's good news which the author of Just Food writes about in Even the Critics Are Coming Around on GMOs And the article he links to about a tour of Monsanto Inside the Country's Most Controversial Company is informative even aside from the surprise that a GM hating reporter from Mother Jones would even deign to visit MonsantoWhile I'm here I'll also point to an interesting interview with a Monsanto scientist by the Mother Jones affiliated science podcast Inuiring Minds Inside the

    eBook James McWilliams ´ Just Food eBook µ ´ just ebok, food mobile, Just Food PDFJust Foods is an important book in the continuing and continually escalating debate over how we should grow our food and what we should eat Environmental historian and reformed locavore James McWilliams invites us to think logically and dispassionately about some of the most important food issues of our time and of the future Having read two of McWilliams' previous books I expected a controversial detailed and well documented discussion I wasn't disappointed In summary McWilliams argues 1 that global food production is fuel efficient and economically necessary for developing countries that need export markets than is local food productionconsumption locovorism; 2 that organic farming is no healthy for people and for the

    eBook James McWilliams ´ Just Food eBook µ ´ just ebok, food mobile, Just Food PDFEach year I try to read one book that goes against the grain of how I think about things I picked “Just Food” without knowing much about it except for the subtitle “Where Locavores Get it Wrong and How We Can Truly Eat Responsibly” I am not a card carrying loacavore by any means; I do not belong to a CSA nor do I calculate the meal on my plate i

    eBook James McWilliams ´ Just Food eBook µ ´ just ebok, food mobile, Just Food PDFMcWilliams is an excellent researcher He has some very worthwhile ideas And he seems to have a genuinely balanced perspective As unconventional as it is in our increasingly polarized society he swims against the current of schismogenesis and attempts to actually discuss and raise awareness of agricultural issues rather than preaching to one of two choirs who mostly scream at one another when they interact at all It's really a shame that the book is so astoundingly boringMaybe that's not fair but it's hard not to grade on a curve when The Omnivore's Dilemma and Fast Food Nation and the like are out there Those books raise important discussions about food production in modern society and this is key they are extremely entertaining to read This one isn't It just might be the Wuthering Heights of the non fiction world If you th

    eBook James McWilliams ´ Just Food eBook µ ´ just ebok, food mobile, Just Food PDFTo start the blurb Everyone who has read up on their Michael Pollan should also read Just Food is misleading While it is true that I think Just Food is an important read it by no means is a counter argument against everything Pollan has written; in fact it agrees with some of Pollan's ideas That being said The first half of the book I regretted ever picking it up I found myself on the receiving end of a repetitive lecture about the fallacies of locavores and organic produce The writing also had an air of superiority and was condescending to the reader I had to put it down and take a break for a few weeks and read something else I was glad that I returned to read the rest of the book instead of filing it away under could not finish Once McWilliams went into genetically modified crops we started to reach common ground and the writing wasn't as condescending nor did it feel so m

    eBook James McWilliams ´ Just Food eBook µ ´ just ebok, food mobile, Just Food PDF35 stars because I'd give it 4 stars for general information and 3 stars for readability McWilliams is passionate about his subject global environmental agriculture and the ways in which we in our limited local spheres can help to enact better sustainable global practices and he is often highly informative opinionated and mostly convincing He traces his own journey from committed locavore to someone aware and better educated about actual environmental costs associated with producing and distributing food at mass scales His chapter on food miles what it really means to distribute produce and what the real environmental costs are is a must read I also found his chapters on organic food and auaculture very intriguingThis is a thoroughly researched well sourced and intensive look into modern agriculture and what foodies and smart consumers need to know about it to make informed decisions not nearly as obvious or facile as one might th

    eBook James McWilliams ´ Just Food eBook µ ´ just ebok, food mobile, Just Food PDFthis book was good i thought about giving it 4 stars but could not bring my self to overlook the fact that he never thought to uestion If the solutions he was presenting where just putting off the collapse of our whole food system I like reading an alternative point of view and like what he said about meat organic food and local food but felt like he adviods the hard fact that we are killing the earth and if we don't do some thing radical very soon it will be to late I could not agree

    eBook James McWilliams ´ Just Food eBook µ ´ just ebok, food mobile, Just Food PDFThis is clearly an important book and the star rating system doesn't really do justice to it So if you're wondering whether to read this book consider it a five star review It has some flaws but as someone said of Kant if I recall correctly the mistakes of a great thinker are valuable than a thousand correct platitudes from a lesser oneMcWilliams takes on one of the hottest topics in food politics the whole uestion of the locavores who emphasize the need for eating locally In his first chapter he demolishes the whole food miles paradigm Without even pausing for a breath he then proceeds to take on organic agriculture genetically engineered foods land based animals auaculture and ecological economics His approach is nonideological He just wants to preserve the environment and feed the world and thinks we need technology to do that On the other h
