Americans are not only eating more these days (as evidenced by our expanding waistlines), but we're also talking about what we eat more often — and finding out that we have a lot to learn about our food. We're asking ourselves questions like: "What's the deal with genetically enhanced items? And why this sudden focus on organics?" Learn more about topics like these and others tonight at 7 p.m. at the Missouri History Museum (Lindell Boulevard and DeBaliviere Avenue) during the lecture "The American Table: The Science and History of the Way We Eat." A panel of knowledgeable professionals leads the discussion, and admission is free. Call the museum at 314-746-4599 or visit www.mohistory.org to learn more.
