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.
