This is the conclusion of Michael Pollan, an author who has written some fantastic books on food from a very unique and entertaining perspective.
I review one of his books “The Omnivore’s Dilemma” in the January issue of my newsletter (subscribe above, top right corner to receive your copy!).
He talks about his new book, In Defense of Food, in a radio interview that you can listen to below. In that he clarifies what he means by the above statement, and talks about some of the research he did to come to this understanding.
It is a great interview, and if you have any interest at all in food and health, you will be sure to enjoy it.
