On today’s edition of Please Explain, Marion Nestle, Paulette Goddard Professor in the Department of Nutrition, Food Studies, and Public Health and Professor of Sociology at New York University, and author of the blog, and Urvashi Rangan, Director of Consumer Report's and Consumers Union's Director of Technical Policy, join us to explain how to decipher the real information from the marketing claims, and let us know what to look for in the nutrition facts–and what to avoid—when we’re choosing our foods in the grocery store.
