Sep 23, 2011
Marion Nestle, PhD, MPH, Paulette Goddard Professor in Dept. of Nutrition at NYU.
A fantastic overview of the state of the American food system from food safety to marketing to children (Frosted Flakes & Froot Loops marketing budgets = $20million+), corporate lobbying against soda sugar tax, to the “food revolution” of more people demanding local organic foods, farmer’s markets (over 6,132 in 2010), calorie labeling, and much more.
