Marion Nestle will discuss her book, “Food Politics,” which chronicles how food industry competition works and how it affects the health of Americans. The abundance of food in the United States — enough calories to meet the needs of every man, woman, and child twice over — has a downside, Nestle says, causing the food industry to do everything it can to get people to eat more.
The Paulette Goddard Professor in the Department of Nutrition, Food Studies and Public Health at New York University, Nestle has worked on nutrition policy with the Department of Health and Human Services, the Food and Drug Administration and the American Cancer Society.
