Talk by Harold McGee & others on Mon-Tue at McGill

Chocolatesa Nov 10, 2012 07:26 AM

The Lorne Trottier Public Science Symposium Series, Food: A Serving of Science, talk will be given at Mcgill. I definitely want to go! I recently discovered Harold McGee's blog and read the whole thing. So fascinating! Don't know how to code in a link and there no convenient "add a link" button that I can see so here it is: http://www.mcgill.ca/science/events/t...

    Cool! I love Harold McGee!

    Sadly, I don't think I'll be able to make it though.

      "The symposium will be recorded for distribution as webcasts (both live, and viewing on demand) plus future television broadcasts by Canal Savoir."

        I thought just the panel discussion was going to be recorded for podcast, anyways i was planning to go after dr. joe schwartz praised it on his radio program past two weeks. I will give it a try but depends if i can find some parking and get entry into symposium since it is first come first serve basis. Terrific speakers and free!

          kind of technical tonight, overview of studies but didnt stay for question period which might have helped in some clarifications, Have to remember potatoes should not be considered a vegetable! Also debunked myth about milk and good bones, take more vitamin D instead which also has other benefits related to specific cancer prevention.. Interesting debunking of food guides and certainly reinforces food/lifestyle links with various illnesses.. Tomorrow looks to be more practical, I may just wait for podcast. Lots of room though as very big auditorium + balcony. Anybody else go, wonder what I missed in 2nd half...

            Thanks for the report!

            I will wait for the podcast; oddly enough a lot of the subject matter jibes with a friend's complaint about certain nutritional guides via Twitter this morning.
