Hi, my name is Dr Tim Crowe and I'm a career research scientist and educator with most of this spent in the absolutely fascinating, yet always controversial, area of nutrition. I now work chiefly as a freelance health and medical writer and scientific consultant. You’ll also see me active in the media giving regular TV, radio and newspaper interviews.

Whether I am writing for health professionals or consumers, my message is always based on current evidence informed by peer-reviewed journal articles, government and peak health body guidelines, and medical experts.
