Unsavory Truth: How Food Companies Skew the Science of What We Eat

By Marion Nestle

(Basic Books)

Marion Nestle, Paulette Goddard Professor of Nutrition, Food Studies, and Public Health, Emerita at New York University and a CHNY member, explores how the food industry funds nutrition research, and how industry-funded research and industry-funded nutrition societies almost always favor the sponsor’s interests, sometimes at the expense of public health. The book gives plenty of examples and suggests what professionals and the public can do to deal with the undue influence of food companies on nutrition advice.
