What spaghetti sauce tells us

Malcolm Gladwell with a different take on 'we are what we eat'

We are not all the same. This sounds obvious but for a long time the food industry treated us as if we were, in the sense that they tried to make each product perfect. Malcolm Gladwell explains how they discovered that this isn’t the right approach, what the right approach is. He goes on to explain what this tells us about ourselves, about stats, and about the recent history of science. All through spaghetti sauce.
