Michael Pollan On Oprah: Let's Vote With Our Forks (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Wednesday, Oprah hosted Michael Pollan author and food expert to talk about his latest book, Food Rules, and the Documentary Food, Inc. which takes a behind the scenes look at the industrial food system and how we eat in America. Oprah praised the film on the show as "eye-opening and thought-provoking." One of Oprah's favorite aspects of the film was how empowering the film was to individual people: "the consumer really is the biggest voice behind whether or not there will be change or not, because everyone, the industries, and the corporations respond to what the people demand," she declared.

Oprah goes on to ask Pollan what he eats and what he buys and the grocery store, and jokes about her past history with the beef industry suing her.
