So much of our health science seems to seek as the ultimate goal a pill that will reverse the effects of junk food without making the patient actually give up that junk.

The subtext of this cultural reductionism is that altering, extracting from, isolating, adulterating and fabricating foods is not to be questioned. We just need to keep trying to reverse-engineer nature so that we can get the benefits of healthy foods without having to actually eat them.

Instead of trying to reverse engineer, adulterate, modify, isolate and "enhance" natural foods, all we really need to do is enjoy them -- and the wonderful health they give us when we don't tinker with them.

Hi Amira,

You've got a very attractive blog, and I appreciate your elaboration on natural foods.
I am an editor at, the debate website, and I kind of just stumbled onto here. It looks like you're interested in the vegan/vegetarian lifestyle, so I thought I'd let you know about a debate we're having right now. It's about whether we should eat meat or not.
Check it out if you have the time; it looks like you'd have a lot to say. And feel free to send me an e-mail to tell me what you think.
