Marion Nestle is Paulette Goddard Professor in the Department of Nutrition, Food Studies, and Public Health at New York University. From 1986 to 1988, she was senior nutrition policy adviser in the Department of Health and Human Services, and she was managing editor of the 1988 Surgeon General's Report on Nutrition and Health.

In the interview, Nestle talks about conflicts of interest between food companies and academics, the difference between food products and food, and the problem with pomegranates.
