Speaker:  Lisa Martin, Reynolds Homestead

 

According to author Michael Moss, much of the cheap, calorie-rich, processed foods Americans eat have been tinkered with to manipulate our biological desires, to induce cravings, and to trigger food "highs".  Join Lisa Martin as she leads the group through an overview of Moss's indictment of the food industry and the ways in which consumers have been misled by food companies.  She will bring examples and samples of foods deliberately marketed in a manner that misleads consumers.  A provocative and interesting discussion.
