ABSTRACT
An interview with Kelly Brownell, a professor in the Department of Psychology at Yale University, is presented. When asked why he calls the food environment toxic, he reasons that people exposed to the food environment develop chronic diseases like diabetes and obesity in fast numbers. He recalls that growing up, there were no aisles of food in the drugstore, or fast food restaurants are not open 24 hours. He agrees that the price structure of food influences consumers to buy in large portions or servings. INSET: Eat, Dahlink. Eat.
