As emerita professor of #nutrition, #food studies & public #health at New York University and leading critic of the North American food system Marion Nestle explores in her latest of nine #books, ‘Unsavory Truth: How Food Companies Skew the Science of What We Eat’, food companies shape the public perception of how foods rank from good to bad – or, in this clickbait day and age, from life-saving to cancer-causing – be it through marketing of ‘super fruits’ or funding research that strategically casts a better light on the soda sector.

The point is to look beyond the labels in food aisles and ask more questions of the claims they make.

“Food marketing & advertising are not about benefits to consumers; they are about benefits to corporations and shareholders. Food companies are not public health agencies.”—Marion Nestle
