In this first trailer/episode, we introduce ourselves and explain a little about why we think the current state of nutritional discourse needs to change.
"I mean it’s just food, right? Where's the harm?" If we’re going to make a podcast with the intention of addressing the current state of nutritional discourse, there's nothing more appropriate to start with than the phrase, 'Food is Medicine’. In this first episode of season 1, we discuss how the phrase came to be; why it's become so trendy; and whether it's helpful or harmful to furthering the public perception of nutritional science*. Tune in again next week as we unpack some of the important differences between biomedical and nutrition science which will help further explain why this phrase is misguided.

In this episode, we discuss how identity politics are making the conversation around nutrition harder, and why we must do everything in our power to champion agnosticism when it comes to our food choices. We also discuss how to identify common nutritional fallacies, including the appeal to authority, appeal to nature, appeal to ignorance, exception fallacy and the single cause fallacy.

Talking about the pitfalls and the problems with nutritional discourse can often make it feel like nutritional science doesn't know anything. Fortunately, that's just simply not true. In this episode, we discuss the current evidence around what actually constitutes a healthy diet, and what evidence-based simple advice might look like. Join us for the TL;DR of all nutritional science. No pressure Alan. Relevant references can be found in the full show notes. If you enjoyed this episode please do rate, review and subscribe!
It wouldn't have been right to conclude Season 1 without having dedicated an entire episode on the impact that socio-economics has on nutrition and health. It's a huge barrier to people both receiving and implementing any well-meaning advice that may be given, and one that needs to be acknowledged.
