Wed. Feb 19th, 9:00am - 10:30am
SSC 2050

In his #1 New York Times bestseller, Salt Sugar Fat, Pulitzer Prize-winning author Michael Moss traces the rise of the trillion dollar food industry and its link to the obesity epidemic. He shows us how corporations knowingly use salt, sugar, and fat - and the latest in food science - to addict us and, more importantly, how we can fight back.

Join us for an eye-opening expose about health, nutrition, politics, corporate interests, and the power of individuals to gain control of their shopping and dietary habits. You will never look at a nutrition label, or the food on your plate, the same way again.

Michael will be available for book signings outside of SSC 2050 after his session.  “Salt Sugar Fat” will be available for purchase at this time OR in advance at The Book Store at Western.


Before coming to The New York Times, Michael Moss was a reporter for The Wall Street Journal, New York Newsday, and The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. He has been an adjunct professor at the Columbia School of Journalism, and is the recipient of a Loeb Award and an Overseas Press Club citation.
