Michael Moss, an investigative journalist, talks about his reporting on the processed food industry that earned him a Pulitzer Prize and led to his writing a pair of New York Times bestselling books. His work has been likened to a detective story in the way that he crawls through the underbelly of this $1 trillion enterprise to reveal just how the food giants got us to become so dependent on their products, and stands as an urgent indictment of that same industry given the enormous hidden cost to our health. You may never look at potato chips or Cheetos or Hot Pockets the same way again.
