Top 5 Free Nutrition Podcasts

Nutrition Advisor in Pakistan

Nonetheless, this show will give you straight-forward, real information while demystifying some of the most ridiculous misconceptions around nutrition perpetuated by food manufacturers and mainstream media. 3. The Rich Roll Podcast For those vegan listeners and learners, The Rich Roll Podcast is a quirkily professional source of knowledge and science around not only vegan nutrition but vegan nutrition as an athlete. With a variety of powerful interviews, Rich Roll has taken his own experience after writing his renowned memoir, Finding Ultra, and aims to educate anyone looking to further their health on a plant-based, vegan lifestyle that may also include intense exercise paths such as ultra-endurance training or even the more seemingly mellow forms of exercise and wellness such as meditation and yoga. My only qualms with Rich Roll, compared to others on this list, is that he himself lacks a level of pep that keep listeners engaged, particularly in his introductions in each episode.

Journalists schooled on nutrition

Madam Wilhelmina Okwabi, Deputy Director and Head of the Nutrition Department at the Ghana Health Service, said recent analysis on epidemiological evidence showed that in Ghana 40% of all deaths before the age of five were due directly and indirectly to under nutrition, making it the single most important cause of child mortality. She said a recent study suggested that the high prevalence of under nutrition, coupled with inadequate maternal and child care behaviour such as low rate of iron supplementation among pregnant women, early or late initiation of complementary feeding among children, might be reasons for the stagnated child mortality levels in Ghana. Madam Okwabi said while there was a steady improvement of the nutritional situation in recent years, the prevalence of under nutrition was still unacceptably high. She listed feeding practices, food security, food safety, health care, water, sanitation and hygiene, socio-cultural and caring practices as the major determinants of malnutrition. Madam Okwabi said under nutrition in Ghana resulted in stunting, underweight and that the three northern regions as well as the Central Region had the highest rates of stunting and wasting. She said the rates were linked closely to food insecurity situation in those areas according to the Ministry of Healths 2007 National Health Policy.
