Thursday on Lake Effect: Phthalates in Fast Food, James Beard Awards, and Science Accesibility

Thursday on Lake Effect:

Today on the show: food, both good and bad. First, a new study looks at the dangers of phthalates in fast food. And with the James Beard Awards set for next week, food contributor Kyle Cherek discusses how Wisconsin has fared in recent years. Later, how to make science more accessible to non-scientists. Plus, the effort to make children’s literature representative of all the kids who read it.
