David Brancaccio, PBS host for “NOW”, talks with filmmaker Robert Kenner, the director of “Food, Inc.,” which takes a hard look at the secretive and surprising journey food takes on the way from processing plants to our dinner tables. The two discuss why contemporary food processing secrets are so closely guarded, their impact on our health, and another surprising fact: how consumers are actually empowered to make a difference.
