Last October, I participated in a panel discussion organized by the Harvard Food Law Society in Boston. The panel included Drs. Walter Willett, David Ludwig, Robert Lustig, and myself, with Corby Kummer as moderator. Dr. Willett is the chair of the Harvard Department of Nutrition; Dr. Ludwig is a professor of nutrition and pediatrics at Harvard; Dr. Lustig is a professor of clinical pediatrics at UCSF; and Kummer is a food writer and senior editor for The Atlantic.
The Food Law Society recently posted a video of the discussion, which you can find here. I commented on the discussion in a previous post. This was the same meeting at which I gave my TEDx talk, "The American Diet: a Historical Perspective". It's an informative 17 minutes if you haven't seen it. Many thanks to the Food Law Society for inviting me to participate. The Food Law Society is hosting the Ancestral Health Symposium in Boston this summer, at which I'll also be speaking.
I also did a short interview recently with Todd Whitthorne, CEO of Cooper Concepts, a division of the Cooper Aerobics Center in Dallas, which you can find here. We talked mostly about obesity and food reward. The Cooper Aerobics Center has been involved in quite a bit of interesting research on the effects of exercise on health. Hint: it's good for you. Todd is a nice guy and his enthusiasm is contagious.
