In Defense of Food: Michael Pollan

PBS has been hitting it out of the park lately with so many programs focusing on health. The latest one is called, In Defense of Food, featuring Michael Pollan. (Click on the title and it will take you to the video).

I swiped this off the PBS website to give you an idea what the documentary is about. After watching it I’m sure you won’t look at food the same way and hopefully it will make you a more savvy grocery shopper.

“Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants.” With that seven-word maxim, US-based journalist Michael Pollan distills a career’s worth of reporting into a prescription for reversing the damage being done to people’s health by today’s industrially driven Western diet. In Defense of Food debunks the daily media barrage of conflicting claims about nutrition. Traveling the globe and the supermarket aisles to illustrate the principles of his bestselling “eater’s manifesto,” Pollan offers a clear answer to one of the most confounding and urgent questions of our time: What should I eat to be healthy? ”


Pollan also wrote a book by the same title if you are interested.
