I am a doctor of biology, not a medical doctor, and more importantly not your learner's personal doctor.  This course is not meant to give personalized diet advice, but rather to explain the evidence-based science of food.  I have given lectures on nutritional science in general biology university courses and have over 15 years of experience in scientific research.
