For my latest San Francisco Chronicle column, I borrowed a query from a reader of this blog demanding financial disclosure. This gave me the opportunity to discuss how sources of funding – especially from food companies – raise questions about whom to trust when it comes to nutrition advice. Thanks to all of you who commented on that original post. Most interesting.
The column appears in the Food and Wine section. Although the San Francisco Chronicle, like many newspapers, is ailing badly, this section has just been selected by the Association of Food Journalists to win its award for best section. I’m proud to be part of it.
Next public appearance
This will be the closing keynote to the 7th Biennial Childhood Obesity Conference, sponsored by the California Department of Public Health, UC Berkeley, the Atkins Center for Weight and Health, the California Department of Education, Kaiser Permanente, and the California Endowment.
It’s at about 11:30 a.m. in the Long Beach Convention Center.
