Cover image for lecture: When Food Turns Toxic

Lecture Overview

How is it that the essential elements for sustaining life - food and water - can also poison us? This session with nutritionist Katie King explores questions like: what makes certain nutrients like gluten toxic to some people? Are some processed foods actually poisoning our gut? Good and bad bacteria - what’s the difference to gut health? And, how can we assist and provide education to promote and prevent food toxicity?

I found the constant hand gesturing by the presenter to be very distracting. She did not appear to be confident in delivering her presentation . I did however learn some new information about the gut.

REALLY bad. The speaker was not very confident in her explanations and often fumbled over her words. No information was actually passed on and it was a bit all over the place. Do not recommend

From the title, I thought it would be about food poisoning and food handling. The information was interesting. Presentation was a bit long-winded at times but new information was learned nontheless.
