Nutrition and health is today’s hot topic in the media and throughout social media. With so many conflicting messages, celebrity nutrition gurus, and a good dose of commercial conflict of interest, how do you work out if what you’re reading is credible?
For over 15 years, I’ve maintained an active profile in the media. Providing independent nutrition expert comment for television news, current affairs, documentaries, newspapers, radio and magazines. Ranging from topics from today’s latest fad diet to diet during cancer treatment, there are few nutrition and health topics that I would not be able to provide informed expert comment on.
Backed by a 30-year academic career in nutrition and health research, you can count on comment from me being informed by an understanding of the latest scientific research. And if there is ever a potential conflict of interest from a commercial activity I’m involved in, I’ll certainly make you aware of it.
Here’s the full list of over 500 interviews I’ve carried out so far. And following are just a few of the more recent interviews for you to check out. You can contact me to arrange an interview through here.
