Dr. Marion Nestle is back on Heritage Radio! Tune in as she joins Katy Keiffer for a lively and spirited discussion on What Doesn’t Kill You. Freshly back from visiting the USA Pavilion at the World’s Fair in Milan, Marion has a new book, Soda Politics on the horizon and has lots to share on today’s show. Hear about the power of the ethanol lobby, the need to bring agriculture and health policy together, and the continued failings of the US Congress. Marion Nestle is Paulette Goddard Professor in the Department of Nutrition, Food Studies, and Public Health (the department she chaired from 1988-2003) and Professor of Sociology at New York University. Her degrees include a Ph.D. in molecular biology and an M.P.H. in public health nutrition, both from the University of California, Berkeley. This program was brought to you by Cain Vineyard & Winery.
