Your Call 020708 In Defense of Food

Why is it so hard to figure out what we should eat? On the next Your Call we welcome back Michael Pollan, author of In Defense of Food. In his celebrated book The Omnivore's Dilemma, Pollan traced what it was we were eating. In his new book, he lays out his theory why a country obsessed with eating healthy is failing so utterly at the task. Could eating for pleasure be the key to a healthy body and a healthy environment? It's Your Call with Rose Aguilar and you.
