Is Big Food the New Big Tobacco?

With big industry comes big responsibility and not every corporation exercises that to their consumers’ best interest. This podcast investigates the manipulation tactics of Big Tobacco and compares it to the modern-day dominating industry of Big Food. Despite being manufacturers of entirely different products, I’ve revealed how these two industries are entirely capable of manufacturing similar deceit. Does Big Food sing from the same exploitative playbook as Big Tobacco?

  1. Hi Ailsa, this is an excellent and thought provoking podcast. As someone who has lived with obesity most of my life And had two bariatric operations this completely hits home with me. I’ve always said people need to eat to live so unlike other addictions it’s not possible to abstain completely. Great work I’d love to see you do a tv documentary on this subject.
