On this edition of Your Call’s One Planet Series, Professor Marion Nestle joins us to discuss her latest book, Unsavory Truth: How Food Companies Skew the Science of What We Eat.

It reveals how the food industry manipulates nutrition science and shapes our understanding of nutrition and health. She says we need and deserve sound nutrition advice aimed at promoting public health—not corporate interests, so how do we make that happen?

Guest:

 

Marion Nestle, Paulette Goddard Professor of Nutrition, Food Studies, and Public Health, Emerita, at New York University, and author of Unsavory Truth: How Food Companies Skew the Science of What We Eat
