Interview with Chris van Tulleken about his book Ultra-Processed People: The Science Behind Food That Isn’t Food. Argues that the ultra-processed food that makes up 60 percent of the American diet is an industrially produced edible substance that is not really food and is killing us. Advocates stronger government regulations to curb its consumption.

This is a hard-hitting critique of ultra-processed food. Adam Gopnik and Helen Lewis have good reviews that push back on the strongest claims and argue for a more nuanced position.
