A typical question regarding hot topics in nutrition tends to be framed as “Is X good for me?” This type of question lacks context and framing and, as such, is unanswerable. Better questions address the context of “instead of what?” and “with what?”. Join us for our next Science of Alt Protein seminar where Professor Gardner will address this context and the steps to minimize bias in reporting regarding his recently published SWAP-MEAT study — the Study With Appetizing Plant-food — a Meat Eating Alternative Trial.
Meet the speaker
Dr. Christopher Gardner
PROFESSOR, STANFORD UNIVERSITY
Christopher Gardner holds a Ph.D. in Nutrition Science and is the Rehnborg Farquhar Professor of Medicine at Stanford. He is a co-author of the 2019 ADA Consensus Report on Nutrition Therapy for Adults With Diabetes or Prediabetes (Diabetes Care), and the current chair of the American Heart Association Nutrition Committee. For ~30 years his research has examined what to eat and what to avoid for optimal health. This includes more than 20 nutrition intervention trials conducted with >2,000 participants. The primary study outcomes in these trials are typically cardiometabolic factors (e.g., insulin, glucose, lipids, blood pressure, inflammation/immune function, body composition). Relevant to this presentation is his 2020 SWAP-MEAT trial which will be covered in detail.
