In Videos: Michael Pollan on 'Nightline'


Last night's Nightline featured Michael Pollan talking about his twelve commandments for eating from his book In Defense of Food: An Eater's Manifesto:

In general, I'm inclined to stick with the tried and true when it comes to food. And let the novelties be tested for a while. I think we need to begin to spend more on food, both in terms of money and in time. I know that's not a popular message. People like their convenience foods. But this experiment of outsourcing our food preparation to corporations has failed us. I mean, it's left us really unhealthy, really unsatisfied. And I think it's undermined the family life and undermined the community.
