He wrote a book and discusses how we can all eat better. How do you legislate “deliciousness”. He talks about Phillip Morris making both food and cigarettes.
Food Rules is the name of the book. He says the same lawyers are the same with both the food and cigarettes and Jon ask how did they figure out how to get us to eat more. He talks about the healthcare bill getting passed and that insurers will have an interest in consumers health, which they don’t have now. Food industry creates patients for the healthcare industry he says. BD
