Dr. Meaghan and Dr. Ron Kirschling sit down to discuss the second book club for the book Food Politics by Marion Nestle.  In this book club, we present Part 1 and Part 2 of the book.  

Here are the five main points that we took away from these two parts of the book:

  1. Nutritional advice is meant to be confusing.  The nature of the game makes it complicated and that it is not always the information that is sent out to the media is based on scientific research and unbiased facts.  
  2. A lot of the information that we get regarding nutrition comes from the food industry and has a potential bias because the food industry wants to make money.
  3. Research studies are open to interpretation.
  4. When the government tries to establish guidelines, there is always a political undercurrent to those guidelines and compromise from the government and food industry.
  5. The real issue for the food industry is profits because it is a business.

Listen in as we discuss how these principles have shaped the food industry and how lobbyists have played a major role in our food politics.
