  8. 11. <ul><li>“ There are some forty-five thousand </li></ul><ul><li>items in the average American </li></ul><ul><li>supermarket and more than a </li></ul><ul><li>quarter of them now contain corn.” </li></ul><ul><li>~Michael Pollan </li></ul>
  9. 12. <ul><li>“ She cooked with Crisco or Wesson </li></ul><ul><li>oil rather than chicken or duck fat and </li></ul><ul><li>used margarine rather than butter because </li></ul><ul><li>she’d absorbed the nutritional orthodoxy of the time, which held that these more </li></ul><ul><li>up- to- date fats were better for our health. </li></ul><ul><li>(Oops.)” </li></ul><ul><li>~Michael Pollan </li></ul>
