[INTERVIEW] Dr Leon Bynoe with Susan Birch, The Health Detective – Nutrition and our Evolution

I love talking with my friend and fellow nutritional advocate, Dr. Leon Bynoe. Leon is an Ophthalmologist interested in human evolution and the “Diseases of Civilisation.” In today’s podcast, Leon presents a compelling presentation on how our nutritional requirements today have been shaped by our evolutionary past and how the changes in our modern food environment have resulted in disastrous effects on our health.

Leon delves into the controversial aspects of the food pyramid and the widely recommended Mediterranean diet, challenging the notion that they are the optimal choices for good health and longevity.

The following are links to all the references in this episode.
