from, "Food Rules: An Eater's Manual," by Michael Pollan


PART III: How Should I Eat? (Not too much.)

Rule #57 - Don't get your fuel from the place your car does.

American gas stations now make more money inside selling food (and cigarettes) than they do outside selling gasoline. But consider what kind of food this is: Except for perhaps the milk and water, it's all highly processed., imperishable snack foods and extravagantly sweetened soft drinks in hefty twenty-ounce bottle. Gas station shave become "process corn stations": ethanol outside for your car and high-fructose corn syrup inside for you. Don't eat here.


Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants.
