But why is it that healthy food plays such a tangential role in modern healthcare systems? And what can be done to radically change this reality and place food at the top of the medicine chain? These and many other questions are tackled in this fascinating 20 minute conversation. And whatever the answers may be, one thing is clear beyond doubt. If food is brought from the periphery to the center of prevention, billions will be saved in healthcare costs each year. So skip the fried chicken tonight and get yourself a can of chickpeas.
