Oxford Martin School Seminar series: Health in the 21st century: what’s new?

The Oxford Martin School's Michaelmas Term seminar series will examine the frontiers of technology and ideas in healthcare in the 21st century. 

Health and wellbeing concerns us all, but how is medical care changing and how does it affect us? What new ideas and technology are out there to take better care of us? Does where you live matter? What can we do to extend the quality and length of our lives?

Non-fat, low-fat, saturated fat, trans fats, healthy fats - in an era where we seem to be constantly bombarded with often conflicting messages about our diets, is all this information actually making us any healthier? How can we cut through media hysteria and make wise choices about the food we eat, and what impact do our consumption habits have, not just on our own health but that of the planet?

Well fed? The health and environmental implications of our food choices
