Host Dr. David Naimon talks with journalist Michael Pollan, author of The Omnivore's Dilemma and In Defense of Food: An Eater's Manifesto. Pollan's advice to "Eat food, not much, and mostly plants" is not quite as easy as it sounds, since most of what you find at today's grocer's is not really food, but edible food-like substances. Find out how to tell the difference between real food and the modern industrial products mislabeled as food, and why you should make the distinction.
