Quote of the Day: Michael Pollan on Boycotting Whole Foods


TreeHugger has covered the issue: Whole Foods CEO Causes Scandal Over Anti-'Obamacare' Article and asked our readers: Should "Progressives" Boycott Whole Foods Over CEO's Statements on Health Care? Now Michael Pollan gives his (I think sensible) opinion:

So Mackey is wrong on health care, but Whole Foods is often right about food, and their support for the farmers matters more to me than the political views of their founder. I haven’t examined the political views of all the retailers who feed me, but I can imagine having a lot of eating problems if I make them a litmus test.
