Our diet can play a huge role in how well, or not well, our bodies function. While we have an understanding of how our digestive tract processes food, there is a lot of ambiguity around what happens next. Dr. Semir Beyaz and his team at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory aim to understand how what we eat affects us at physiological, cellular, and molecular levels. He joins us today to share some of his findings and future directions of his research. Listen in to hear more.
Dr. Beyaz acknowledges that there are a lot of claims around nutrition that are not scientifically backed. He encourages you to seek out primary literature when doing your own research. He recommends the American Cancer Society, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and FDA guidelines if you are interested in learning more about nutrition.
