In Defense of Food

PBS produced a doc series version of Michael Pollan’s book, In Defense of Food. Most of us know the tools he’s describing to live a healthier life. But I for one always need reminding and tweaking. From PBS,

“Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants.” With that seven-word maxim, US-based journalist Michael Pollan distills a career’s worth of reporting into a prescription for reversing the damage being done to people’s health by today’s industrially driven Western diet. In Defense of Food debunks the daily media barrage of conflicting claims about nutrition. Traveling the globe and the supermarket aisles to illustrate the principles of his bestselling “eater’s manifesto,” Pollan offers a clear answer to one of the most confounding and urgent questions of our time: What should I eat to be healthy?

Unclear whether there will be more episodes. I assume there will be. But this first two hours is essential viewing for anyone who wants to be healthy and do it in the simplest of ways. Bravo to Pollan for getting the word out. 5 out of 5.

PBS is currently streaming In Defense of Food on their website.
