Today on Your Call: How are corporations setting the agenda for public health?
On today’s Your Call, we’ll have a conversation with Nicholas Freudenberg about his new book, "LETHAL BUT LEGAL: Corporations, Consumption and Protecting Public Health." He argues that decisions made by six industries -- food, tobacco, alcohol, pharmaceutical, gun, and auto -- have a greater impact on today's health than the decisions made by scientists and policymakers. How can we restore the balance between corporations and government and profit and public health? Join the conversation on the next Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.
Nicholas Freudenberg, distinguished professor of Public Health at City University of New York and Hunter College
