Regarding the chemistry of natural foods, I love this guy's strategy for
communicating about this issue: All-Natural Banana
But for the image posted above, I'm taking it as an attempt to get people
thinking about shifting priorities in food selection. I was having a
conversation with some doctors on Twitter last week in which one of them
was ranting repeatedly that all we need to know about nutrition is to eat
real food instead of modified food with added sugar or chemicals in it.
What he actually kept saying was, "All you need to know is Eat Food."
That's the gist of the message above. Now, I was not in agreement with him,
in that my argument was that nutrition isn't that simple for people with
certain genetic differences or diseases that make their food choices more
subtle and complicated. I didn't disagree with what he said as a broad
theme, but he was using this to try to counter my argument that nutrition
and food selection can be rather complicated for some folk, depending on
health, environment, family history, and personal genetics.
