Biologist: Processed Food Isn't All Bad

Best Before Book Cover
"Best Before: The Evolution and Future of Processed Food," by Nicola Temple.

When you think about processed foods, you probably think about Cheetos or Doritos — the kinds of foods that you might not really know what’s in them.

But processed foods aren’t all bad, according to biologist and science writer Nicola Temple. She makes the case for processed food in her book "Best Before: The Evolution and Future of Processed Food."

The Show spoke with her about why we shouldn’t turn our backs on processed foods.
