Food panic?

7:00pm, Wednesday 22 February 2012, London

The topic is “Panic on a Plate”. Rob Lyons’s recently published book examines today’s current obsession with food and the myths that surround it. Is there a scientific basis to eating five fruit and vegetables a day? Is tomato ketchup bad for kids? The obsession with healthy eating affects everyone and creates a particular anxiety for parents trying to do what is best for their children. Rob’s book looks objectively at the food propoganda surrounding us and dares to challenge things given as absolute truths.

SPEAKER(S)

Rob Lyons will introduce the topic.
