Two Experts at Stanford University - Dec 2012

- POSTED ON: Dec 17, 2012

Recently the Stanford University Medical School, Health Policy Forum hosted an event examining the reasons why we get fat and how different diet trends and food policies affect our nation’s obesity rates.

The forum featured a conversation between science writer Gary Taubes and Christopher Gardner, PhD, director of Nutrition Studies at the Stanford Prevention Research Center.

During the discussion, Paul Costello, the medical school’s chief communications officer, talked to Taubes and Gardner about Americans’ misconceptions about food, diet and nutrition, the driving forces behind the obesity surge of the late-80s and the path to a healthier, leaner lifestyle.  Below is a video of that 1 hr 24 minute forum.

Well, I'm a Gary Taubes fan and have been for a long time. Both Gary and Christopher have valid points; but the bottom line is "we are not all alike". Great video and thanks for posting it.
