pollan_highres2Michael Pollan is getting on that dietary pulpit and speaking the gospel.

The Bestselling author is warning that if we don’t fix our food system, we’ll never fix our health-care system.

Pollan recently told the New York Times:

“Cheap food is going to be popular as long as the social and environmental costs of that food are charged to the future. There’s lots of money to be made selling fast food and then treating the diseases that fast food causes. One of the leading products of the American food industry has become patients for the American health care industry.”

What do you think about all of this? Is fixing our food the first step in fixing health care? Chime in and play doctor.
