Reductionism in Nutrition Science with Dr. T. Colin Campbell

Season #1 Episode #1

In this episode I speak with my longtime hero Dr. T Colin Campbell about the current state of nutrition science, what a holistic vs. reductionist approach to nutrition and scientific research looks like, and how reductionist thinking is harming public health.

This includes:
- What is reductionist science and why it's harmful
- how reductionist science and thinking is hindering our public health approach to the COVID19 Pandemic
- How and why holistic science and nutrition research is being suppressed
- How to deal with conflicting research
- whether specific nutrient pathways/theoretical mechanisms or real world data matter more

Colin Campbell center for Nutrition studies and the Plant Based Nutrition Certification Program in partnership with eCornell.
