Happy Birthday, Food Politics!

Food Politics is celebrating a birthday this year with the publication of a tenth anniversary edition in May.  Today is actually its eleventh birthday.  My department celebrated the occasion with a birthday cake!

  • A very happy birthday to a book that was instrumental in my nutrition career!

  • A hearty congratulations, Marion! Here’s to a groundbreaking title that launched discussion for over a decade, and for many decades to come.

  • Congratulations Marion. I remember you mentioned in a previous post that you don’t get much fan mail, so I wanted to let you know that the work you are doing is inspirational. I’m just getting around to reading the book now, but I follow the blog with great interest, and am now going back to school in the hopes of following in your ground-breaking footsteps, here in South Africa.

  • Happy Birthday Marion!
    The world of food would be different without you and your strong voice… Wishing you many more to come and Thank you!

  • Tara

    Happy anniversary! You’ve been such an inspiration to me and so many others. Thank you for being such a logical, smart voice out there in the confusing world (made even more confusing by the big food industry) of food and nutrition!

  • Husky Jakobs

    Congratulations Prof. Nestle ^^
    It is impossible for me to understand those inconvenient truths without reading your books. I do appreciate your guidance and help in helping so many people develop their consciousnesses in the field of food and its relevant.

  • Happy Food Politics! Thank you for sharing so much useful information 🙂 I would you have a great birthday!

  • It’s comforting to have Marion Nestle in the world speaking truth to power. Here is to ten more years. Cheers!

  • Happy Birthday Food Politics, on to the next decade!

  • The idea that profit-maximizing behavior by food companies might harm your health and your waistline is a more mainstream idea now than it was back in 2002 when Food Politics was first published .

  • Happy birthday Marion, like other here you have been an inspiration to me also. I wish you many more years of helping others just like me. Thanks.

  • Happy Anniversary Marion. I am a huge fan and supporter of your work. You have been instrumental in my work as an educator, wholesome and healthy foods advocate as well as researcher. I first discovered you as a doctoral student and have followed you ever since. I know that I can count on you to come forward with the truth which is something I appreciate. Keep up the great work. I’ll be getting this edition in May for sure!
