Michael Pollan on Amy Goodman: Don't Eat Anything That Doesn't Rot

America doesn't have a health care problem. It has a health problem. To fix it:
Pollan on Democracy Now!: You need a farm bill that basically evens the playing field and is not driving down the price of high-fructose corn syrup, so that, you know, real fruit juice can compete with it. You need a farm bill that makes carrots competitive with Wonder Bread. And we don't have that, and we didn't get it this time around.
And we won't be getting it the next time around or the time after that, Michael.
My solution: dissolve Iowa in Coke.
