"We have this dual problem both related to how we nourish ourselves... American eaters have incredible power in the food system. We have dictated what the world eats. Our diet has spread around the world." [7:34]

--Ellen Gustafson on Food Talk

"Should we be eating less meat? Yes, probably. We should be eating less commodity meats." [40:03]

--Patrick Martins on Food Talk
