Interview with George Zaidan about his book Ingredients: The Strange Chemistry of What We Put in Us and on Us. Discusses what makes a food highly processed; how and why humans began to preserve food; what aphid excrement has to do with one of the first sugar-added treats humans enjoyed; how cigarettes and e-cigs are similar and different; whether there is such a thing as too much sunscreen; causes of flawed scientific research; whether coffee is good or bad for us; and the acceptable amount of processed food to consume.
