In This Episode We Discuss

  • How John has made a name in the nutrition field whilst remaining relatively “nutritionally agnostic”
  • Tribes have utility, hence why they are inherently human
  • The “problem” of tribalism in nutrition: when they bias our thinking they can potentially stand in the way of finding truth.
  • Tribes are not equal
  • How some people don’t acknowledge their “luck” in being evidence-based
