In this episode's News & Views segment, we cover recent research that reveals ultra-processed foods make up more than 50% of the American diet, while whole foods and minimally processed foods combined make up only 30 percent. We also talk about how sugar plays into the processed-food diet. Then, we consider what happens when animals and plants are raised on "junk food diets." The Moment of Paleo segment is about the real-food movement. Also covered: Canada's 30 x 30 Nature Challenge, a new book recommendation, and Mark Bittman in the After the Bell segment delivering a talk called What's Wrong with What we Eat?
