|The Daily Show With Jon Stewart||Mon - Thurs 11p / 10c|
This is a fantastic short interview with Michael Pollan. The basis for the interview is his new book, Food Rules, but he mentions other great information, too.
Here are some highlights, although I recommend watching the clip.
"Americans are getting 20% of their calories from high fructose corn syrup."
"240 pounds of sugar a year....is what we're eating."
"Right now the food industry creates patients for the health care industry."
"[The Farm Bill] subsidizes the least healthy foods at the supermarket."
"Eat food. Avoid edible food-like substances."
