 New Scientist – Live: Healthy eating – What science has to say


Join New Scientist Live and a selection of leading scientists for three fascinating lectures at Conway Hall in London this Autumn. Each lecture starts at 7pm and is sure to provide plenty to inspire you and make you think.

11 November – Healthy eating: What science has to say, with:
Susan Jebb, professor of diet and population health, University of Oxford
Bruce Griffin, professor of nutritional metabolism, University of Surrey

Confusion reigns about what foods we should eat to stay healthy. Meat, fat, sugar and salt have all been the subject of conflicting news stories. Preserved meats and “low fat” foods seem to have been added to the danger list. Two leading researchers will discuss what science has to say about our food and how best to stave off disorders such as diabetes, heart disease and cancer.
