Summary
Nicholas Freudenberg discusses his new book Lethal but Legal:Corporations, Consumption and Protecting Public Health(Oxford, 2014).  He summarizes evidence on the harmful health impact of the business and political practices of corporations in the alcohol, automobile, firearms, food and beverages, pharmaceutical and tobacco sectors and assesses the potential of considering corporate practices as a modifiable global and local social determinant of health and health inequality.  Based on case studies of previous and current campaigns to modify harmful corporate practices, Freudenberg explores what roles public health professionals and researchers can play in creating the evidence and mobilizing popular support to reduce the adverse health impact of consumer corporations.
