But many people still don’t know what’s actually making people fat. Is overeating to blame? Calorie counting gone awry? Too many carbohydrates? KQED Forum talks with nutrition and food expert Marion Nestle about her new book, “Why Calories Count: From Science to Politics.”

Original Broadcast: Thu, Jun 7, 2012 — 10:00 AM

Host: Spencer Michels

Guest: Marion Nestle, author, professor of nutrition, food studies and public health at New York University and author of “Food Matters” for The San Francisco Chronicle
