At How We Eat and the Quest for a Slow Food Nation, Waters headlines a panel of people who also think that health, public policy, education, and food are get this, NYT interconnected. We know, "interconnected" is a "Berkeley word," but you'd better get used to it, or the worst thing in the world will happen to you: Your children might get fat. Yeah, yeah, that's it: Fat kids are the problem. Not your receding local water table, or general ill health, or the death of biodiversity. (Who needs bees, anyway?) Whatever your motivation, listen to her. Alice Waters is joined by smart people including Eric Schlosser of Fast Food Nation fame.
