Marion Nestle on food dyes and hyperactivity

fooddyeIt's in the news. If you need to catch up, here's Marion Nestle's take on Food Politics.

"Food dyes have only one purpose: to sell junk foods."

Speaking of Marion Nestle, she'll be speaking at the University of Maryland SMC Campus Center (621 W. Lombard St.) on Monday, April 4 at 4:30 p.m. on "“Food politics, nutrition, and sustainable food production." This is the final lecture in the university's year-long series on The Hungry Mind.

Nestle is Paulette Goddard Professor in the Department of Nutrition, Food Studies, and Public Health () and Professor of Sociology at New York University.  

That's all the information I have on the lecture. And note that the Orioles' opening day game should be breaking up just about the same time as the lecture starts.

Richard Gorelick was appointed The Baltimore Sun's restaurant critic in September 2010. Before joining the paper staff fulltime, he contributed freelance criticism and features articles about food to area and regional publications. Along the way, he dispatched for short-distance trucking companies, shilled for cultural non-profits, and assisted in cognitive neurology research – never the subject, always the control.

He takes restaurants seriously but not himself, and his favorite restaurant is the one you love, too.
