For decades, Marion Nestle has been driving the conversation about food and nutrition. From her prize-winning books like WHAT TO EAT and FOOD POLITICS to her blog by the same name, Nestle has laid out how the food industry’s focus on profit is often at odds with public health, and what one should eat given that distressing reality.
In her new book, LET’S ASK MARION: WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE POLITICS OF FOOD, NUTRITION, AND HEALTH, Nestle showcases her decades of thinking about food politics in 18 short essays that explore the ways food intersects with politics, culture, identity, social class, inequity, and power. The book covers personal dietary choices and nutrition, community issues like food safety and school food, and global matters like the worldwide food chain— which has shown weaknesses during COVID-19—and climate change.
Let’s Ask Marion is a savvy and insightful question-and-answer collection that showcases the expertise of food politics powerhouse Marion Nestle in exchanges with environmental advocate Kerry Trueman.
Marion joins Dr. Roizen today to talk about these queries. Among the questions Nestle addresses in the accessible, science-based style for which she’s known: Why does nutrition advice always seem to be changing? Are low-carb diets really better for us? Why don’t we demand a higher standard of food safety? Why do we waste so much food? Can we feed the world well? Can we stop agriculture from contributing to global warming?
