Follow Up to the Nestle Water Post

After writing Nestle Corp Opens Retail Store in Bronx: Sellin Tap Water to the Poor by best friend, Z (who I met in one of Anthropology courses long ago), chimed in to tell me about a book – Food Politics: How the Food Industry Influences Nutrition, and Health, Revised and Expanded Edition (California Studies in Food and Culture) by Marion Nestle (yes, the author’s last name is Nestle).
Z told me, “It’s really good book on the origins or the FDA and the politics of the food pyramid and how our food is controlled politically. It also discusses the major food corporations, what people used to die of…”
Sounds interesting!

We cannot live without water and when access to water becomes privatized, these companies have the ultimate power to decide who gets access – who gets to live.
