Sheila Dillon speaks to the author and food campaigner Michael Pollan about the ideas in his book, In Defence of Food. She asks him about his concept of 'nutritionism', an approach to food that concentrates on nutrients: fats, vitamins, salts, sugars, the constituents of foods, rather than the foods themselves. The interview has been awarded the Miriam Polunin Award for Work on Healthy Eating by The Guild of Food Writers.
