Trying to eat healthier? Are you conscious of your salt intake but can never get it low enough? What about fat? Is it now good to have? It seems that with nutrition, everything that was good is now bad and everything that was bad is now good. Or is it?
For this podcast I'm joined by Dr. Andrew Mente (Twitter: @AndrewMente), an Associate Professor at McMaster University and a global leader in nutrition research. His research on the Prospective Urban Rural Epidemiological (PURE) Study has led to ground-breaking findings to determine what good nutrition is, with particular focus on sodium and fat intake.
During the interview, Andrew touches on various controversies in nutrition such as how much salt is too much and can you actually have too little? Will eating saturated fat cause heart disease, or has it been wrongly accused? And what exactly is a healthy diet?
