Your Call: Marion Nestle: "Soda Politics: Taking on Big Soda (and Winning)"

On the December 1st edition of Your Call we’ll have a conversation with professor Marion Nestle about her new book "Soda Politics: Taking on Big Soda (and Winning)."  

Nestle says soda companies have been employing marketing, public relations and lobbying to protect their profits at the expense of public health, but health advocacy has become the single greatest threats to soda industry profits. How are people organizing against the soda industry? Join the conversation, on the next Your Call, with Renee Kemp.


Marion Nestle, nutrition scholar, and Paulette Goddard Professor in the Department of Nutrition, Food Studies, and Public Health at New York University
