This blog, which is no longer actively maintained, was an attempt to encourage Pollan to check facts and think through arguments more carefully. I am Adam Merberg, a Ph.D. candidate in mathematics at University of California, Berkeley, where Pollan is a professor of journalism. All opinions expressed here are my own (with the exception of those opinions explicitly attributed to others). I received no money, goods, or services for writing this blog. You can contact me via email or Twitter. You can also find my recent writing at Inexact Change.
