Do superfoods like blueberries, goji berries, and acai really have the miraculous health benefits ascribed to them? What about red wine, chocolate, and pomegranates? Is the science behind popular health claims real or hype? In this webinar Marion Nestle will demystify the research studies sponsored by food companies to promote their products. You’ll discover the powerful facts behind Marion’s newest book, “Unsavory Truth: How Food Companies Skew the Science of What We Eat” – and learn what you can do to bring about positive change, both at a policy level and a personal level.

Forbes Magazine named Marion as number two among “the world’s seven most powerful foodies,” citing her internationally renowned expertise in nutrition research and food politics. Honored as 2018 Grande Dame of Les Dames d’Escoffier, she’s helping establish a worldwide movement that inspires people to use food to benefit both personal and public health.
