Event Details

Mexican cuisine has emerged as a paradox of globalization. Food enthusiasts throughout the world celebrate the humble taco at the same time that Mexicans are eating fewer tortillas and more processed food. Today Mexico is experiencing an epidemic of diet-related chronic illness. The precipitous rise of obesity and diabetes—attributed to changes in the Mexican diet—has resulted in a public health emergency.

Join Tanya Kerssen and Alyshia Gálvez for January’s #realfoodreads podcast as they discuss how the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) has fundamentally altered one of the most basic elements of life in Mexico—food—in  Gálvez’ new book, Eating NAFTA: Trade, Food Policies, and the Destruction of Mexico
