Real Time With Bill Maher May 29 2009 Michael Pollan

I stumbled across this just the other day – a Michael Pollan interview with the controversial (to put it mildly) Bill Maher. Michael Pollan’s latest book, In Defense of Food, has been influencing my thinking as of late – and it includes a long discussion on how recent research has shown that the health benefits of low fat diets are mythical – unsubstantiated by the research. This point is powerful coming from him, as he is not an advocate of low carb, at least in my reading of him, and has no axe to grind in this respect.

Anyway – this video has little to do with his low carb views, but is interesting, and provides a nice introduction to the fellow and his work for those of you unfamiliar with him.
