Film synopsis: Best-selling author Michael Pollan starts In Defense of Food with a simple question: What should I eat to be healthy? The answer turns out to be much simpler than he imagined. 

In Defense of Food shares the remarkably simple seven-word guide to healthy eating that Pollan discovered on his quest: Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants. It’s an eloquent reflection of the power of common sense and old-fashioned wisdom. And it frees us to rediscover the pleasures of eating while at the same time avoiding the chronic diseases that so often stem from the modern diet.
