Bias in Nutrition research and it’s effects.
There’s a lot of research going into food at the moment. How much dairy should we have? Is there a safe level of sugar we can eat? And what connection does the food that we eat, have with diseases and medical conditions. These are all questions that need to be answered, but when you have food companies funding or influencing the research, how accurate will the results be?
Professor Lisa Bero, Chair Professor in Medicines Use and Health Outcomes in the Faculty of Pharmacy and Charles Perkins Centre at the University Sydney joined The Daily to talk about the issue.
