(STILLWATER) – Award-winning journalist and author Mark Schatzker, who wrote “The Dorito Effect” is the featured speaker for the Oklahoma State University College of Human Sciences 2018 Dean Lela O’Toole International Speaker Series on Monday, April 9, at 1:30 p.m. in the college’s Jorns Hall. The lecture is free and open to the public.

 

Schatzker’s presentation, “The Science of Our Relationship to Food, Flavor and Nutrition,” reviews his thesis on the food crisis through the lens of flavor and its essential role in the way we eat today. He argues that the epidemics of obesity, heart disease and diabetes are not tied to the overabundance of fat or carbs or any other specific nutrient, but an overlooked link between nutrition and flavor, which is actually key to reversing the health crisis in North America.

 

Schatzker, from Toronto, is a radio columnist for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation and a frequent contributor to the Globe and Mail. His writing has appeared in the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal and Best American Travel Writing. In addition to “The Dorito Effect: The Surprising New Truth About Food and Flavor,” Schatzker is the author of “Flavor and Steak: One Man’s Search for the World’s Tastiest Piece of Beef.”

 

Established in 1995, The Dean Lela O’Toole International Speaker Series in the College of Human Sciences focuses on timely and relevant topics related to public policy, ethics and international issues in the scholastic areas of the College of Human Sciences. It is held annually during Human Sciences Week at OSU.
