Marion Nestle - Unsavory Truth: How Food Companies Skew the Science of What We Eat

Upcoming Event
Thursday, November 1, 2018 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

In books including Soda Politics, What to Eat, and Safe Food, Nestle has promoted food safety and exposed the misleading claims of food producers, work that has earned her Bard College’s John Dewey Award for Distinguished Public Service and the Public Health Association of New York City’s Media Award. Her new study looks closely at the connection between the food industry and research into the health benefits of particular foods. Recent studies that tout chocolate as being good for the heart, or that claim yogurt prevents type-2 diabetes, have not been the result of independent inquiries, but have been paid for by the products’ manufacturers. Showing these “studies” are less about nutrition than about marketing, Nestle suggests ways to initiate stronger food policy laws and stop the industry from manipulating research.
