TCC FREE Lecture: What’s Not to Like About Processed Food?

November 5, 2014
6:29 pm–8:29 pm

Using vivid examples from recent research in diverse fields of history, Rachel Laudan challenges this common wisdom. Industrially processed food has improved food safety, increased longevity, spurred economic growth, enhanced social and political equality, besides offering unrivaled gastronomic benefits.
