    Has the Benevolent Whole Foods Betrayed Its Health-Obsessed Customers?Whole Foods, of course, simultaneously symbolizes healthy living and urban development. That paradox has never more visible than today, with the government’s approval of the controversial new Gowanus location — a location rich with benzene.
