Omnivore's Dilemma Author Michael Pollan has decided to weigh in on the Whole Foods health care fight, stating he will not boycott the company. Whole Foods customers around the country were outraged in recent weeks with the company's CEO wrote op-ed in the Wall Street Journal opposing Obama's health care reform efforts. Many, including some unions, have called for a boycott.

Pollan writes on New Majority:

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.
