If you could ask Michael Pollan one question, what would it be?

Michael Pollan, author of Omnivore's Dilemma, Food Rules, etc, is coming to speak in my town. I've been asked to do a Q & A as part of his presentation. What would you want to ask MP?

Good luck on this one. I've seen MIchael Pollan on a panel with three other guests, all of whom he was talking over.

These are great questions, thank you! Boulangere, I must say I am relieved that I am not the one making him dinner!! Anyone else have a good question for Michael Pollan? I'll let you know how it goes Pierino, but I am playing only a small supporting role, so I'm fine with MP taking over the stage.

Maybe I'll blog about it. By the way, Boulangere, I was so happy to see that your blog is back. I've really missed the recipes and wit from my neighbor to the north!

I'd like to know how he would suggest getting his important message out to lower socio-economic groups of people, who perhaps haven't been exposed to his writing and perspective, or anyone who isn't a foodie and thinks it is relatively unimportant? I think about this quandry a bit - how to get a message of healthy eating to those that need it most and have the least means of achieving it?

As a note, the organization making the biggest difference in having people in food deserts being able to not only eat but grow and sell great food is Will Allen http://www.growingpower...

He is former recipient of the MacArthur Genius Grant. Worth checking up on what he is doing.

Yes, Meganvt01, I think this is THE QUESTION. Getting the message out to those who need it most...well said.
