What has happened to the human diet?!?! Michael Pollan and I are already concerned.
While doing some research on food eco-labeling, I learned that the EU is regulating “novel foods.” Novel foods are foods and food ingredients that have not been used for human consumption to a significant degree within the European Community before May 15, 1997.
I know I don’t want to eat anything that was not consumed before 1997…I think I’ll be just fine on a diet of milk, water, bread, cheese, grains, fruits, vegetables, and other products not found in boxes on undifferentiated shelves of large supermarkets.
Novel foods are not food.
