"I went in wanting to study food and culture..a lot people go in and change their interests. It can be difficult. There's a lot of really interesting stuff out there."

"Saying "buy local" is not a feasible goal for the long term."

"New York is a great place to study the food systems issue. There are all these people on an island that manage to eat every day. It's a great laboratory to study [food system] models."

For thousands of years, human beings have been deriving their nutrients from food - vegetables, grains, meat, etc. So why have we turned to pills for nutrition and dietary needs over the past several decades? In 2012, the supplement industry yielded 32 billion dollars in revenue. This begs the question: Is food not enough? On episode 97 of What Doesn't Kill You, Katy Keiffer talks with Dr. Marion Nestle, Paulette Godard Professor at NYU's department of nutrition, about the relatively new craze that's sweeping the world of health nuts: supplements. Dr. Nestle explains that the interest in dietary supplements doesn't come from any sort of empirical evidence, but the overall population's lack of faith in our current food system.
