Breaking Silence – Marion Nestle

Sometimes in some ways ‘silence is golden’ but especially in these times, breaking the norms of polite silence is essential.  Stepping up, speaking out and breaking the silence is a public petition that Marion Nestle has pushed throughout her career as author, blogger, professor and respected influencer of food policy.  She is the Paulette Goddard Professor of Nutrition, Food Studies and Public health (emerita) at New York University, visiting Professor of Nutritional Sciences at Cornell and host of the Food Politics Blog.  Marion sees that the Covid pandemic crisis reveals issues such as the fate of today’s packing plant workers that need to be engaged–breaking silence.  The price paid for speaking up may include occasionally being trolled on Twitter as @marionnestle experiences, but that’s “just politics” to be endured for needed progress. www.foodpolitics.com
