the adipose-addled american. how scary is this article in harvard magazine about "the way we eat now"? (thanks, francis.) much of this sounds like a rehashing of schlosser's fast food nation, but after a time, the shock of the numbers wears away and one forgets that there's something not quite right about the fatty ranks that fill our nation. i quote: "10% of [american children] between two and five are overweight." how fucked is that? there's an interesting reference to the current raw food fad, as well, asserting that raw food might not be the way to go, as raw-foodists tend to have low energy and messed-up reproductive systems. raw-food: i call bullshit! my favorite line in the text by far, however, is: "The Amish are not freaks."
