Stop panicking about what’s on your plate
Review of Panic on a Plate on the Independent blogs.
Jason Smith writes that ‘we are in danger of losing our ability to experience food as an enjoyable part of life. The anxiety that food choices can cause today, far from expressing a reality about our food which is more abundant and safer than ever, turn a good situation into a bad one. Modern society has made incredible strides in changing the lives of people for the better through the application of science, industry and reason. We should be pleased by how far we have come and enjoy, not only what we have, but the prospect that with a little imagination everyone could have food as good and plentiful as we do today.’Stop panicking about what’s on your plate, Independent
