CHOICES PRESENTS: “IN DEFENSE OF FOOD” —A FILM STARRING BEST-SELLING AUTHOR MICHAEL POLLAN, SHARING HIS QUEST TO ANSWER ONE SIMPLE QUESTION:
WHAT SHOULD I EAT TO BE HEALTHY?
The answer turns out to be much simpler than he imagined.
Today, the typical American diet includes lots of meat, white flour, sugar, and vegetable oils. It’s cheap, convenient, and has been processed to taste really good. But its effects on health are not so tasty, including alarming increases in obesity and type 2 diabetes.
To complicate matters, recommendations by “experts” about healthier ways of eating seem to change daily. Eat more protein and fewer carbs. Eat less meat. Consume more fiber. Drink less milk. Eggs are bad. Eggs are good. No wonder people are confused.
The film follows Pollan on a fascinating journey to discover the truth about food and health.
