John D. Potter, Chief Science Advisor to the Ministry of Health and Professor at Massey University?s Centre for Public Health Research is an internationally renowned biomedical scientist.
We will be launching his new book, which examines what we know about chronic disease and our eating and drinking habits.
Given that humans have always had to eat, what does diet have to do with causing illness? How different are our eating habits now from those of the gatherers and hunters of old? Why does that matter anyway? And what are we doing to the planet with the way we now raise food? Potter is himself a vegetarian and does not drink alcohol.
