Today's Guest is Marion Nestle, professor in the Department of Nutrition, Food Studies, and Public Health at New York University about her new book Why Calories Count: From Science to Politics. Nestle and her co-author Malden Nesheim sort through the misinfomation put forth by food manufacturers and diet program promoters and show how federal and corporate policies have come together to create an "eat more" environment.  Learn how to interpret food labels, evaluate diet claims and understand evidence presented in the popular media.

"It is essential reading not only for people interested in food policy but for everyone who wants to eat well and be well."---Eric Schlosser, author of Fast Food Nation
