I've been a fan of Michael Pollan's work for some time now, so I was quite happy to run across a video of a recent talk he gave at Google in which he discusses the current understanding of food and nutrition as well as what's wrong with our "system" today.
Even if his name doesn't ring a bell, you may have heard of some of his books: In Defense of Food: An Eater's Manifesto, The Omnivore's Dilemma: A Natural History of Four Meals, and Food Fight: The Citizen's Guide to a Food and Farm Bill.
Anyway, enjoy the video.
And, if you found that interesting, allow me to resurrect my 2+ years old diet posts. They seem to still garner a fair amount of attention, and recent readers may not have been reading when I first wrote them.

Hey Jeremy, thanks for sharing. Michael Pollan's books are awesome. I've read them all.

Thank you for the link. I saw him on BookTV/C-SPAN giving a talk about "In Defense of Food". Very interesting. The book is on my Amazon wish list.
I personally love reading Michaels books. I have read every single one of them. :) That guy is a genius.
The authors with google program is great. Michael Pollan is a great speaker, the video actually kept my attention. He's totally right above the protein shenanigans / Carbohydrates.
Thanks for posting this excellent talk about nutrition. Glad to hear that there are other people out there caring about eating well, but doing it smartly.
Nice blog overall. I enjoy reading it!
