Big Tobacco Lawyers Target Food Industry
If you have 10 minutes, this is a concise and thought provoking video by the BBC comparing Big Food to Big Tobacco, and the lawyers who are working to take on Big Food. There is a section that shows neuroscience researchers testing hypotheses on food and addiction that is both fascinating and creepy (shoving shrimp scampi in a woman’s face while she lays in an MRI tunnel). Kelly Brownell, a personal favorite of mine from the Yale Rudd Center for Food Policy & Obesity, is featured.
