Das Omnivoren-Dilemma

Das Standardwerk über vernünftige Ernährung Der Mensch gehört von der Konsititution seiner Verdauungsorgane her zu den Omnivoren, den Allesfressern. Das war in der Evolution sicherlich nützlich. Doch das heutige Überangebot von Nahrungsmitteln in Supermärkten und Schnellrestaurants bringt nicht nur ihn selbst körperlich an den Rand des Abgrunds, sondern ruiniert auch noch seinen Lebensraum und sein soziales Umfeld. Mit Biss und investigativer Recherche sieht sich Pollan um, wie unsere Nahrungsmittel hergestellt und verarbeitet werden, vom Maisfeld über Cheeseburger mit Pommes bis zum Öko-Menü. Er öffnet uns die Augen für unser gestörtes Essverhalten und für den Weg zurück zu Einfachheit und Genuss.

Sehnsucht nach Stille - wie Christopher Knight 27 Jahre in der Wildnis lebte. Im Sommer 1986 begibt sich Christopher Knight auf einen Roadtrip von Massachusetts nach Maine und verschwindet in den Wäldern. 27 Jahre lang bleibt er dort, abgeschieden von der Welt, ohne menschlichen Kontakt, bis er wegen Diebstahls gefasst wird: Er hatte Essen geklaut. In einem einfachen Zelt überlebte Knight die härtesten Winter, weil er klug wie ein Eichhörnchen Vorräte gebunkert und alles darauf ausgerichtet hatte, nicht zu erfrieren. In den nahegelegenen Ferienhäusern versorgte er sich mit Lebensmitteln, Kleidung und Büchern und verstörte als unheimliches Phantom die Bewohner von North Pond. Der Journalist Michael Finkel hat das außergewöhnliche Leben des Chris Knight dokumentiert. Entstanden ist eine fesselnde Story, die den fundamentalen Fragen über ein gutes Leben nachgeht und das tief bewegende Porträt eines Mannes hinterlässt, der sich seinen Traum erfüllte: ein Leben in absoluter Stille.
