Exploring the sense and nonsense of food and health

Big Food Bias?

Leave a comment

This article from Marion Nestle, a leading nutrition educator,  food advocate and writer presents a few specific examples of how the food industry uses conclusions of studies for their own benefit.  The results may be true, but it is difficult to trust them with so many conflicts of interest involved that often are not even declared.   I used to believe in the value of evidence-based food and nutrition information, but often bias of the authors is suspected through funding and sponsorship  Too bad we have no other way to get the proper information instead of being fed potential misinformation.

Thank you Dr. Nestle – we appreciate your fine work in food politics.  Check out her books and her website.
