Video: Michael Pollan on The Daily Show

Michael Pollan, author of Omnivours Dilemma and In Defense of Food, makes an appearance on The Daily Show on Jan 4, 2010 to discuss healthcare and promote his new book, Food Rules. He discusses the high cost of cheap food, meaning that you end up paying an enormous amount for healthcare when you develop illnesses later in life due to inexpensive processed food loaded with ingredients such as high fructose corn syrup, trans fat, and msg.

Michael Pollan is also featured and interviewed in the movie, Food Inc. which takes you into the food and animal farming industry. I have yet to read his new book, Food Rules, but it is next on my list. In this new book, he discusses several rules to keep in mind such as: Do not eat cereals that change the color of your milk.
