Stanford Introduction to Food and Health

Overview

Despite the countless confusing marketing tricks and esoteric biology of food, it's surprisingly easy for consumers to incorporate basic food science into their grocery decision-making.

This five-week Coursera course was created by Maya Adam, MD, Clinical Assistant Professor at the Stanford School of Medicine. Adam built the course in collaboration with the Stanford Food and Health Team, and it is also aided by interviews with Michael Pollan, Professor of Science and Environment Journalism at University of California, Berkeley.

Providing an accessible primer on food science, Dr. Adam starts with the essential question behind humans' need for food: how do our bodies use food for energy? Adam teaches us how to use this basic understanding of food science to find a healthy, sustainable lifestyle.

"When long-term health is the end goal, the quality of our food matters just as much as the number of calories we consume."
