    • Salud y forma física

For our debate today, we will be discussing the hot topic of nutrition misinformation. In recent months it has been the subject of much debate amongst nutrition experts. We will be discussing the reasons behind the spread of misinformation, the damage it does, and brainstorming the best ways to deal with it. So, in this month’s episode, we’re tackling it head-on and bringing together experts who know their stuff to unpack nutrition misinformation and share their top tips on combating it. We're delighted to be joined by Anna Wheeler, a registered nutritionist with 20 years of experience in a range of nutrition roles along with Lauren Griffin, a registered dietitian with experience across both the NHS and private sectors.

Alongside her clinical work, Lauren runs her own freelance consultancy, providing 1:1 nutritional coaching and health writing. Translating the complex science of nutrition into practical strategies for everyday life. Passionate about dispelling nutritional misinformation, Lauren's recent focus on ultra-processed foods and continuous glucose monitoring showcases her commitment for accurate information, highlighting her advocacy for nutritional literacy.
