Every day, people all over the world are deluged with information about diet, health and medicine. The problem is that most of it is incorrect. The medical journals are filled with studies plagued with conflicts of interest, poor study design, and meaningless conclusions. This is made worse by misreporting by the media. But there is good and accurate information available too and the secret is to learn how to tell difference. Dr. Pam Popper Ph.D author of Food Over Medicine and featured in the NETFLIX popular documentaries Food Choices and Forks Over Knives, will show you how to become an empowered and enlightened consumer of research, be able to discern the reliable from the unreliable and how to apply this information to your own daily life.
