Welcome to a brand new episode of The Doctor’s Kitchen Podcast - and today I welcome the amazing Dr Sandro Demaio - the CEO of EAT*
*a global, non-profit startup dedicated to transforming our global food system through sound science, impatient disruption and novel partnerships
The Doctor’s Kitchen is about blending together the science with delicious recipes inspired by cuisines from across the world and today’s discussion with Dr Sandro takes a slightly different path.
We’re going to be primarily talking about the answer to the question posed by the EAT foundation – Can we feed 10 billion healthy people on a healthy planet?
Here on the Doctor’s kitchen podcast we discuss the intersection between nutrition and lifestyle across the breadth of medical specialities, and it’s just as important to consider our environment. The sustainability of our food choices ultimately impacts the health of our planet hence why we are talking about diet and eating for the world.
Have a listen to the episode - I think you’ll enjoy this one!
