Don’t buy any food that needs advertising

Don't buy any food that needs advertising

Even though this video is 5 years old, it’s still very interesting and pertinent today. I think I first came across Michael Pollan in the documentary Fresh, and I find him easy to listen to and he appears to make a lot of sense. Here, in this interview at about the 10 minute mark (near the end), he makes the very interesting quote;

“Don’t buy any food you’ve ever seen advertised!”

Some other points are;

  • He gives a description of intensive pig farming
  • Genetically modified crops don’t raise productivity. They are good for expanding monocultures (also see Rapeseed invasion and monocultures)
  • Don’t buy products with high-fructose corn syrup
  • Avoid highly processed food
  • High-fructose corn syrup is just “a tool of food science”
  • Food companies have found that if we sweeten anything we’ll buy more of it
  • Then the quote I’ve already mentioned about not buying any food that needs advertising (find this just after the 10 minute mark)
