What to look for on Smart Talk Thursday, April 13, 2017:

Dr. Michelle Mart's 2015 book Pesticides, A Love Story: America's Enduring Embrace of Dangerous Chemicals examined the extensive ripple effects of the use of pesticides in agriculture.  Today, the Penn State Berks professor of history is researching the relationship between American eating habits and the practices and influences of big agri-business and other players in the food industry - including the US government.

Dr. Mart discusses how we choose the food we eat and often it's not advertising.

Dr. Mart joins us on Thursday's Smart Talk to discuss her research and what we should know about what we eat.

Also, Goodwill Industries, including Goodwill Keystone Area has a mission to support persons with disabilities and other barriers to independence.  Goodwill Keystone Area has a new program called Good Careers Start Here that is designed to assist those who have worked at and with Goodwill and their families, with getting a higher education and also providing employers with skilled workers.

Jennifer Diaz, Senior Director of Resource Development, Goodwill Keystone Area appears on Thursday's Smart Talk.
