Amy Goodman interviews Michael Pollan
Over at Alternet they have a very good interview between Amy Goodman and Michael Pollan. I'm currently reading Pollan's Omnivore's Dilemma and I plan to give a thorough review when I've finished (I know, I'm late to the game on that one but I figure press a year later still keeps the conversation rolling). They discuss agriculture policy, the school lunch program, healthcare reform, and more. He distills his advice down to this "don't eat anything that's advertised" in other words, broccoli doesn't have a marketing team, but multi-colored ketchip and cheesy poffs do. Again, his mantra is: eat food, mostly plants, not too much.
