Episode 15: We need more processed food: RealClearScience Editor Ross Pomeroy

September 4, 2017

 

Processed food is unhealthy and you should avoid it if possible, right? Well, maybe not. Contrary to popular belief, processing has done much to improve the quality and stability of our modern food supply--and we're much healthier as a result.

 

RealClearScience editor Ross Pomeroy joins me again on the show to debunk some common misconceptions about processed food. Among the questions we cover: is processed food addictive, and what about all the added salt and sugar in your favorite snacks? Surely that can't be good for you. On a related note, are consumers poorly educated about their food, and are corporations misleading consumers in an effort to boost their profits? Perhaps, but the guilty parties may not be who you think.
