Description

Americans are obsessed with protein. We buy high protein bars, high protein cereals, protein fortified drinks, and we eat meat, eggs or dairy at nearly every meal. In fact, we eat more meat per capita than any country in the world. But why? Christopher, a health researcher at Stanford, will guide attendees through the protein maze with a research-based, common sense view toward understanding this nutrient's human impact, it's reasonable distribution at meals and nutrition options that could shift our cultural approach to it.
