  • A Thought for Food: How Do We Know What We Know?

    Nutrition is notoriously tricky to get a handle on, with conflicting reports and unsubstantiated fads all over the place. So why can't science get to the bottom of what's right—and right for you? For one, it has a lot to do with things called biomarkers.

    The experts featured in this podcast were recorded at the symposium "Biomarkers in Nutrition: New Frontiers in Research and Application," held on April 18, 2012 at the Academy.

    This podcast is a co-production of the Sackler Institute for Nutrition Science and Science & the City.
