The Minefield of the Modern Diet

The World is full of advice about food and dieting. Much of this advice seems conflicting or misleading, is based on pseudoscience or anecdotes, and is fueled by celebrity culture and the media.

In this audio I attempt to guide you through the minefield of the modern diet, separating the facts from the fads as we go.
