HED 584 - Food Politics and Obesity

[3 credit(s)]
Food preferences, production, distribution and preparation are the result of individual decisions about the eating, growing, buying and selling of food. This course will investigate the connections among our health, the food industry and consumer advocacy. Emphasis will be placed on how decisions related to food production and distribution result in specific social costs. Also included will be a review of the components of farm bills/agricultural legislation and how these impact farmers, consumers and the economy. Through a filter of global policies, we will examine the paradox of famine and abundance as they exist side by side.
