This episode is a little different than our previous shows, I ask Chris to break down nutritional fats for you!
There is a ton of confusion when it comes to optimal fats for your health and with his knowledge and easy to follow explanations, hopefully we can dispel some myths and give you some insight into what science says about nutritional fats.
I am calling this episode zero, I wanted to introduce myself and talk a little about the objective of this podcast. My objective is to advance Naturopathic medicine using an evidence-based approach, and I focus on finding evolutionary connections between our modern and traditional health care systems. On top of being a full-time student, I am currently a senior research assistant at SCNM and I am also an associate researcher at Arizona State University Biodesign Institute, where I focus on botanical medicine research.
