Carolyn Cobbold, A Rainbow Palate, How Chemical Dyes Changed the West’s Relationship with Food
Carolyn Cobbold is a research fellow at the University of Cambridge, where she investigates the history of food and science. Her work has been published in Annals of ScienceOsirisAmbix, and Business Insurance, among others.

We live in a world saturated by chemicals—our food, our clothes, and even our bodies play host to hundreds of synthetic chemicals that did not exist before the nineteenth century. By the 1900s, a wave of bright coal tar dyes had begun to transform the Western world. Originally intended for textiles, the new dyes soon permeated daily life in unexpected ways, and by the time the risks and uncertainties surrounding the synthesized chemicals began to surface, they were being used in everything from clothes and home furnishings to cookware and food.

In A Rainbow Palate, Carolyn Cobbold explores how the widespread use of new chemical substances influenced perceptions and understanding of food, science, and technology, as well as trust in science and scientists. Because the new dyes were among the earliest contested chemical additives in food, the battles over their use offer striking insights and parallels into today’s international struggles surrounding chemical, food, and trade regulation.

Saray Stancic, MD, What’s Missing From Medicine
Saray Stancic, MD is a board-certified physician and the subject of the recent documentary film Code Blue. From 1999 to 2006, Dr. Stancic served as chief of infectious diseases at the Hudson Valley Veterans Administration Hospital in New York. During those years she treated hundreds of patients with viral hepatitis and HIV and directed the MOVE program, a federal VA initiative to encourage healthy lifestyles in veterans. She later joined the viral hepatology team at Roche and conducted clinical studies for new, more efficacious treatments for hepatitis infections. During these research years, she continued to see patients at the Bronx Veterans Administration Hospital in New York City. In 2012, in response to her personal experiences as a multiple sclerosis patient as well as a veteran physician, Dr. Stancic founded one of the first lifestyle medicine practices in the country, where she created a distinct contemporary health-care model rooted in traditional medical principles. Dr. Stancic’s current practice focuses on educating and empowering patients to understand the importance of the personal lifestyle choices discussed in this book. She mentors medical students and residents and seeks to contribute to initiatives centered on redefining the health-care paradigm. She is a fellow of the American College of Lifestyle Medicine.
