Michael Pollan on Oprah

2010_01_pollano.jpgToday, rule-maker Michael Pollan went on Oprah to discuss and promote his new book. In the segment, Pollan gave his usual spiel about navigating the "treacherous landscape" that is the American supermarket and so on. But the best part might have been when Oprah pointed out how people in Greenland eat seal blubber regularly, to which Pollan responds that the seal-eaters—and also Africans who drink blood—are still healthier than Americans because Twinkies don't exist there.
