Episode #1—Nutrition and Food Insecurity Morning Sign In

    • Health & Fitness

Ever find yourself on the prowl for a tasty midnight snack? Well, recent research studies have found links between late-night snacks and lower fat breakdown in humans, and between high-calorie diets and disrupted mealtimes in mice. In our first-ever episode of 'Morning Sign In', come hear MSO at UCLA’s current President, Laila Khorasani, and editor Bella Chen tackle the topic of nutrition! Laila provides excellent insight on the state of food insecurity and hunger during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, and she also discusses recent MSO articles on important research about the role of meal timings and weight gain. Bella follows up by explaining key concepts in nutritional science, including food with potential health benefits, their role in inflammation, and the interplay between free radicals and antioxidants in the body. If you’re interested in learning more about the topics discussed, you can do so at our website, www.msoatucla.org!
