I heard a radio interview with Michael Pollan, a nutrition expert, about the importance of preparing our food ourselves -- in other words cooking. He says cooking is the single most important thing we can do to safeguard our health. He explains that corporations that are in the business of preparing food shop badly. They buy the cheapest foods and then try to dress it up with salt, sugar and fat to make the food palatable and to save money. Also they put a lot of additives into the food to make it last longer and we're putting all this stuff into our digestive systems.
A lot of people argue that they just don't have the time to cook. But the truth is we tend to find the time to do something if it's important to us. For example, the average person spends two hours a day on the Internet.
After hearing all this I decided to start cooking more than I do now. What do you think?
