On today’s show, processed food is the theme. Eye-opening stories cover the intriguing cereal industry, why the dairy industry would like to change the definition of milk, and you’ll hear a major processed food industry organization try to convince you that all food is processed. The Reader Roundup segment includes a story about a man who has decided to stop eating real food, in favor of powders. And in the After the Bell segment, you’ll hear an excellent TED talk along with a discussion about Evolutionary Psychology.
