This problem is especially acute in a country with endless food choices—many of which are highly processed and far removed from their natural origins. Pollan sets out to trace major American food sources like corn , which he follows from one end of the food chain to the other in a journey that takes him from farms to fast-food restaurants. In doing so, he explores the implications of the choices Americans make within the modern food system, ultimately seeking to answer what Americans should eat, for their own sake and for the sake of the planet. Pollan explores the American food system by focusing on four different meals that are representative of three food chains: the industrial, the organic, and the hunter-gatherer.
