  1. Food Rules for Healthy People and Planet

    For the past 20 years, Michael Pollan has been writing about the places where the human and natural worlds intersect: food, agriculture, gardens, drugs, and architecture.

    "The Omnivore’s Dilemma", about the ethics and ecology of eating, was named one of the ten best books of 2006 by the New York Times and the Washington Post.

    Join Michael Pollan at the RSA as he introduces his new book, "Food Rules" - and explores its key central message:

    "Eat food. Mostly plants. Not too much."

    Using those seven words as his guide, Michael Pollan provides a set of memorable everyday rules for eating wisely, gathered from a wide variety of sources: among them, mothers, grandmothers, nutritionists, anthropologists and ancient cultures.

    Speaker: Michael Pollan, the award-winning author of "In Defense of Food" and "The Omnivore’s Dilemma", contributing writer to the New York Times Magazine and the Knight Professor of Journalism at UC Berkeley.

  2. Conversations With History: The Politics of Food

    Host Harry Kreisler welcomes writer Michael Pollan for a discussion of the agricultural industrial complex that dominates consumer choices about what to eat. He explores the origins, evolution and consequences of this system for the nation’s health and environment. He highlights the role of science, journalism, and politics in the development of a diet that emphasizes nutrition over food. Pollan also sketches a reform agenda and speculates on how a movement might change America’s eating habits. He also talks about science writing, the rewards of gardening, and how students might prepare for the future.

  3. The future of food: can we eat our way out of total confusion?

    Has food been replaced by nutrients; and common sense by confusion? Once upon a time we ate food. Now we eat nutrients, embedded in food-like substances, like yoghurt fortified with omega-3 or bread rolls infused with anti-oxidants. Are foods like carrots, broccoli and chicken better for you before or after they take a trip to the food processing plant? Do we need more nutrients in our diet or is it all getting out of hand? And are scientists to blame for all this confusion? ABC´s Paul Willis hosts this lively public forum with: Michael Pollan, a food writer and professor of journalism at the University of California Berkeley and author of In Defence of Food; Professor Mark Adams, dean of agriculture, University of Sydney, an expert in sustainable agriculture; Dr Ingrid Appelqvist, team leader for the CSIRO´s designed food research program.
