Podcast #14: Unhealthy Consequences of Government Nutrition Initiatives

Hadley Heath

Hadley Heath Manning, IWF's Director of Health Policy, sits down with IWF Culture of Alarmism Director Julie Gunlock to discuss the unhealthy consequences of government nutrition initiatives. Government is increasingly meddling in American food manufacturing and consumption. Many accept these measures as harmless: what’s the matter with government nudging people to eat healthier? Hadley and Julie discuss why these initiatives come at a high cost in terms of higher food prices, in wasted tax dollars, and even—ironically—to our health. They answer why it is in the best interest of Americans for government to get out of the diet business.
