How The Corporate World Fuels Our Junk Food Addiction (VIDEO)

Michael Pollan explains why cooking food yourself can make all the difference in bettering your health.

"They don't talk about addiction in the food industry even though they traffic in addiction. They talk about cravability," explains writer and activist Michael Pollan in the latest RSA short.
