Nestle 400x400slow cooked bkMarion Nestle is arguably one of the world’s most important voices regarding food policy, politics, safety, and study. She founded the nation’s first Food Studies program, at New York University, and has authored several seminal books including Food Politics: How the Food Industry Influences Nutrition and Health, What To Eat, Safe Food: The Politics of Food Safety, Unsavory Truth: How Food Companies Skew the Science of What We Eat, and more.
