natural_path in foodismyscience

Hello

Hi everyone, I was excited to find this new community!
I just wanted to introduce myself, I am a student at the University of Guelph, in the Nutraceutical and Functional food biochemistry program. I love food, and im especially interested in the role of diet and lifestyle in the health/disease process.
Hopefully the community pics up!

Its a WICKED program, as far as I know it is the only program of its type in North America, or maybe even the world. It starts with basic nutrition/biochem foundations and focuses on non-nutritive physiological effects of food items, we learn about isolating compounds from foods (ie soy isoflavons) and enriching foods with nutrients such as DHA and polyphenols. our lectures range from deconstructing ADA food pyramids, to physiological effects of marijuana... I LOVE my program!
Wow! Blows my dietetics out of the water! Do you also talk about certain kinds of diets and their effects too, like veganism?
yup, and macrobiotics, and atkins, and religious diets.
I was gonna take my RD, but it wasnt really what I wanted. I want to get my MD after anyways
