    All creatures are defined ecologically by how they fit into a food chain.

Pollan tells these stories to tease out conclusions about what's gone wrong with the industrial food system and its implications for our health. He also explores healthier alternatives to industrial food. Part of Notable Lectures & Performances series, Colorado College. Recorded February 8, 2007.
