Marion Nestle

ODS Seminar Series Presents

Food Politics 2023: Supplements, Diet, Food Systems

by Nutrition Scientist and Author Dr. Marion Nestle

Wednesday, March 1, 11:00 am–12 noon ET



About the Speaker

Marion Nestle, Ph.D., is the Paulette Goddard Professor of Nutrition, Food Studies, and Public Health, Emerita, at New York University. Her research and writing examine the scientific and socioeconomic influences on food choice and its consequences, emphasizing the role of the food industry.

About the Presentation

Evaluating the quality—the truth—of information given to the public about diet, nutrition, and health has become a major challenge for food and nutrition scientists, educators, and regulators. Publicly available information about supplements is a classic example of this problem as so much of this information is based on anecdote, belief, and opinion rather than on experimental evidence, such as from clinical trials. The literature on countering misinformation tends to focus on providing facts, despite limited evidence for the effectiveness of this strategy. This presentation will address the dilemma of providing actionable information and countering misinformation from the perspectives of its research base and the speaker’s personal experience and views.
