    Michael Pollan is like the ultimate 'concerned dad'. He never comes off as incindiary or provocative. He just gives you the information you need to make better choices. Love him.

    I don´t know if I got them all but here´s the list:
    1) Don´t eat what your grandmother wouldn´t recognize.
    2) Don´t eat foods with more than five ingredients.
    3) Avoid foods that never rot.
    4) Eat all your meals at a table.
    5) Eat when you are hungry, not when you are bored.
    6) Stop eating before you´re full.

    Get rid of Social Programs. Get out of wars. And help people grow their own food.

    End the Fed, IRS,

    VOTE Libertarian.

    I agree.

    Nothing will change with Romney nor Obama…..just business as usual.

    I don't think that we need to spend more money on food in order to improve its quality. There's clearly huge profits that can and are being made in the food industry. If demand was to change over to more whole/organic foods, then businesses would shift over in response. However, government subsidies for certain food crops have made modern processed foods very profitable and I think that's probably making it much more difficult for the industry to shift in any way.

    I completely agree with the way you’re thinking about the juxtaposition between disparity and production. The next questions follow then, though: Do we want to condemn people to making below a living wage for backbreaking now industrialized work that exposes them to insane amounts of pesticides and other biochemicals? Wouldn’t a better solution be to incentivize a more sustainable system of food production to begin with? Surely this would attract a new generation of farmers in and of itself.

    Just remember not to get rid of social programs unless and until you can get rid of subsidies to agribiz, Big Pharma and the rest. Individual entrepreneurs will not have a fair chance otherwise.

    2. A heavy progressive or graduated income tax.

    that is the 2nd plank of the communist manifesto.

    Why are we subsidizing sugar and in new york putting a heavy tax on it.

    animal fats and proteins have been shown to be the cause for almost every degenerative disease going. If you want health and vitality, eat a high carbohydrate, low fat plant based diet!

    I like the fact he's great at talking about food so poignant, and his surname is Pollan! Awesome Thanks Michael.

    Great speech. One possibility for the last question is: "Change the role played by the family nowadays, going back to what has been done in the past. Instead of a family as a "consumption center", make it a "production center". Adding to it the old concept of neighborhood and exchange products with neighbors.
    And this is not what big corporations are looking for, so it has to be done by simple and regular people. Not corporations, not government….  only people getting together.

    True. But just missed a practical conclusion! Stick to the food of a locale. Preferably the one into which you are born in. (Excluding the unfortunate ones who were born into a cosmopolitan culture!) Never mix foods from different cultures/region. Because the food also has got evolution. The local food and the humans in that enviro has developed together for thousands of years. You will find the checks and balances mostly unsaid and inherent in the regional foods taken together. When you mix all these are getting upset. The western (American for example) food is a mixture of food from different cultures and that is its defect!

    Make your own yoghurt! It is so cheap, easy and delicious — and healthy 🙂 Start with actually buying some natural yoghurt — one with no sugar and does contain lactobacillus. Heat fresh milk (not UHT stuff) to just under boiling, (180F) leave it at that temperature for 15-30 mins. Cool it to around 110F if you have a thermometer, add and stir around 3 tbsp of the yoghurt, wrap in blankets with a couple of hot water bottles, let it sit keeping warm and still for 7-8 hours. It will look solid with yellow-green fluid on top, Either spoon some of that off for the dog, who loves it, or stir, put in fridge overnight, and enjoy!! (Sarah Slade)

    I have an extra credit report on this video. My teacher has asked me to write a short paragraph on topics she picked from this video. Two of them I cant seem to figure out after watching this video twice. "2. Food Industry Efforts to Prevent release of information about food origins" the other is "3. Pollan’s statement “…the logic of industry and the logic of biology are in conflict. When that happens, biology always wins”."  Does anyone know the part of the video where M.Pollan talks about food industry efforts and the part where he is quoted? I dont remember seeing him saying anything about industry and biology conflict.

    When one explains his point with using few words shows his wisdom on the matter. When he resorts to long explanations tells you he is not sure himself or is trying to condition you to except his agenda. Wisdom is crying out in the streets, you just have to listen for it.

    Out of the ones I listened to which I found inspired and were great, this one I like the least. A little too much knocking on science here. And I know Mckenna used to do it (I don't know if Pollan heard of him, but they share some philosophical ideas) but Mckenna was more convincing about it. Nutrition isn't something that I think of as a cultural practice. Fast food is our culture, it literally is our culture, and that should not guide us. Drinking beer is part of our culture, but it's a horrible idea. Comparing nutritionists to a priesthood is a horrible analogy.

    Great speech. People should also take their time eating and chew their food well. People are in a rush to eat because of their busy schedules. This also increases cortisol when contributes to weight gain. GMO corn seeds contain roundup which is proven as a carcinogen. Not to mention GMOs are illegal in a lot of countries. More people are starting to grow their own food because they don't trust commercial food products.

    So inspirational!
    The way the system functions is failing us all, GMOs have not improved the food chain for the needs of anyone.
    The food regulations has failed dramatically, regulating what????
    The Health system in my opinion is never addressing the root causes of diseases, nor addressing the immune system!
    Holistic approach is frowned upon due to the mainstream system having a monopoly on the populations staying diseased ridden!
    The whole system is failing the whole worlds prosperity!
    Namaste!

    "Medicalize" = "monetize" for the capitalist.

    Excellent program, and I have already broken free of "Westernized" eating, and better already.
