Fast forward to 10 minutes when the man begins to talk. I think many of you have read this book. But for those who haven't, this will really change how you think.

If the video interests you enough, I can highly recommend his two books, "The Omnivore's Dilemma" and "In Defense of Food."

He also has a couple great rants about how reductionism in nutrition has led to illusions in the food aisles of processed foods being healthy.
