The iconic and seemingly irrepressible “typical American diet” is a paean to plant foods – unfortunately, not the right kinds of plants. We don't seem all that interested in the variety with leaves, roots, and stems. Rather, we have shown far greater digestive devotion to the kind of plant that comes equipped with an assembly line, than to the variety with xylum and phloem. Factories that process food, and factory farms that use what might have been food as feed to fatten what then becomes food ...
