Center Director Nick Freudenberg on MSNBC
Watch NYC Food Policy Center director Nick Freudenberg discuss his new book Lethal but Legal on MSNBC’s The Cycle. This new book examines how corporations have shaped ― and plagued― public health over the last century, first in industrialized countries and now in developing regions. It is both a current history of corporations’ antagonism towards health and an analysis of the emerging movements that are challenging these industries’ dangerous practices. The reforms outlined here aim to strike a healthier balance between large companies’ right to make a profit and governments’ responsibility to protect their populations.
