"Eat Food. Not too much. Mostly plants." These words to live by from the award-winning author Michael Pollan resonate at the heart of his newest work, "In Defense of Food: An Eater's Manifesto." He considers what science does and does not know about diet and health, proposing a new way of thinking about food that is informed by ecology and tradition. Pollan is Knight Professor of Journalism at UC Berkeley. Recorded on 01/17/2008. (#14209)
