Marion Nestle opens the 2018 Cleveland Humanities Festival and CWRU’s 2018 Food Symposium. In this lecture Marion Nestle, Paulette Goddard Professor, of Nutrition, Food Studies, and Public Health, Emerita, at New York University, discusses the idea that the paradox of today’s globalized food system is that food insecurity or obesity threaten the health and welfare of half the world’s population. Underlying these problems is an overabundant but inequitably distributed food system in which corporations are forced to expand markets to meet growth targets. The contradiction between business and public health goals has led to a large and growing movement to promote more healthful, environmentally sound, and ethical food choices and to identify a more equitable balance between individual and societal responsibility for those choices.
