Just Food: Where Locavores Get It Wrong and How We Can Truly Eat Responsibly. McWilliams, James E. McWilliams, James E.

But how in the world can you pass this off as advocating a moderate or golden mean position? In fact, mcwilliams is something of an extremist on the meat issue--and for good reason, though, as ive said, he could afford to rethink his dismissal of the arguments in favor of grazing animals. What is just food? One might answer food produced without causing undue ecological damage, food grown under production systems that allow workers and farmers to earn livable wages, food thats healthy, accessible, and affordable to everyone who eats. The author often categorizes proponents of alternative food systemsfirst locavores, then organic advocates, then those who object to genetically modified cropsas wild-eyed extremists in need of some firm schooling on a golden mean of producing food.

A great value for the avid reader! Good can range from a well cared for book in great condition to average with signs of slight wear. Other animals, including range-farmed animals, may be less damaging to the environment and to their consumers, but still require (by a 3-to-1 ratio) more energy to produce than they offer in return. Now, in principle i tend to agree with mcwilliams on this point, though i am a bit more positive about the grassfed and free-range meat alternatives than he is.

Again and again, one gets the uncomfortable feeling that mcwilliams creates fanatical straw men in order to make his own presentation of facts seem like a rational alternative. But do any serious proponents seeking more sustainable alternatives to conventional agriculture claim this? As he continues on his mission to disabuse the ecological faithful of their trust in growing organically, mcwilliams uses the fact that sometimes organic growers use toxic natural compounds to knock organic off what he perceives to be its high horse of purity, and then cites the work of a controversial berkeley scientist, to support the view that many modern pesticides dont hold the same risks as their older counterparts. If pesticides arent so bad, one wonders why the authors measured support for gmo crops hinges in part with the argument that they allow for a reduction in pesticide use. One imagines, rather, that consumers, when faced with a system they dont support, are voting with their dollars for the only alternatives they can find-local food at the farmers market and organic products at the store.

    The few truly orthodox locavores who presumably exist (do you know even one?) arent close to persuading the world to eat the way they do. Factory-farmed beef consumes 33 calories of fossil fuel for every single calorie of meat produced, as well as creating huge amounts of air, soil, and water pollution and--on the other end--causing serious health problems in those who over-consume. Or do they? To be sure, there are many studies that show the exact opposite-that is, that gm crops have done nothing to reduce pesticide use, mcwilliams writes.

    Just foods is an important book in the continuing (and continually escalating) debate over how we should grow our food and what we should eat. But do any serious proponents seeking more sustainable alternatives to conventional agriculture claim this? As he continues on his mission to disabuse the ecological faithful of their trust in growing organically, mcwilliams uses the fact that sometimes organic growers use toxic natural compounds to knock organic off what he perceives to be its high horse of purity, and then cites the work of a controversial berkeley scientist, to support the view that many modern pesticides dont hold the same risks as their older counterparts. What is just food? One might answer food produced without causing undue ecological damage, food grown under production systems that allow workers and farmers to earn livable wages, food thats healthy, accessible, and affordable to everyone who eats.

    Like any book on the economics and ecology of our food supply, just food is deliciously controversial, offering a bounty of subjects that at some point are sure to displease. Admittedly, there are problems associated with a michael pollan type diet beef is still resource intensive and costly to produce, organic farming methods still use harmful but naturally occurring pesticides, but mcwilliams often conveniently disregards the fact that as individual consumers, these buying decisions are the only means we have to make a difference (albeit a very small one. The most sensible recommendation mcwilliams makes is that if we want to lesson agricultures impact on natural systems, we need to eat less meat. Again and again, one gets the uncomfortable feeling that mcwilliams creates fanatical straw men in order to make his own presentation of facts seem like a rational alternative.
