British writer Will Self on our obsession with food


"What I think we require, as a society, is some sort of collective vomitorium. Not, you appreciate, that I expect you — like those mythical Roman patricians — to void the contents of your stomachs then limp groaning back to the dinner table. No, what I think we should all do is throw up our very obsession with food itself, and enter the new year purged and able to forge a new relationship with whatever we happen to find on our plates."

— British writer Will Self, in an op-ed for BBC News Magazine.
