The Dorito Effect

A lively and important argument about where the key to reversing America’s health crisis lies.

By Mark Schatzker Read By Chris Patton

"One particularly wonderful thing about Schatzker’s thesis is that if flavor is the voice in which the nutritional benefits of the natural world call out to us, then the impulse to eat taco-flavored Doritos, Caesar wraps and maple-flavored ribs is not the opposite of but rather akin to impulses toward $6-a-pound heritage-breed chicken, or dandelion greens. They are both, as Schatzker puts it, “unconscious strategies against dilution.” Access, not moral fiber, is the difference between one person’s search for flavor and another’s." - The New York Times
