MSPGH Seminar: 9th October 2019 – The Quality of Calories: Competing paradigms of obesity pathogenesis, a historical perspective

12.30-1.30pm, Wed 9th October 2019
Seminar Room 515, Level 5, 207 Bouverie Street, Carlton

Mr Gary Taubes, Co-founder and Director, The Nutrition Science Initiative

Long-held beliefs about the role of energy balance in weight regulation and obesity may be flawed. Taking a historical perspective, this seminar will discuss the existence of an alternative hypothesis for obesity – that it is caused by a defect in the regulation of fat metabolism and fat storage, a fat-trapping disorder rather than an energy balance disorder. If true, this alternative hypothesis has profound implications for prevention and treatment of both obesity and its associated chronic diseases.
