Dr. Masterjohn earned a PhD in Nutritional Sciences from the University of Connecticut in the summer of 2012. He has served as a postdoctoral research associate in the Comparative Biosciences department of the College of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and an Assistant Professor of Health and Nutrition Sciences at Brooklyn College, part of the City University of New York. Recently Dr. Masterjohn left academia to conduct independent research and create content that teaches people how to live healthier lives.

He is CRAZY smart. I actually have to listen to his podcasts in chunks, because he has sooo much wisdom to share. But today we did our best to keep the geek factor under control (for the most part) so you don't want to miss it!

Here are a few of the fascinating topics we discuss:

Why Dr. Masterjohn quit drinking soda before he stopped smoking cigarettes

The unconventional way he discovered the profound healing power of food

The common mistake he was making that was ruining his health

Why his classmates probably disliked him

Why he was using tons of soy protein

Why the scientific method is important

How science has made us unhealthy

The limitations and strengths of the scientific method

Why science isn't always foolproof

Why we shouldn't necessarily consider certain types of trials better than others

The benefits of tightly controlled trials (and their downsides!)

Why observational data is important and what it teaches us

The REAL issue in nutritional research today (this is surprising!)

The one trial he believed to be more problematic than any other

Where should we start when researching a topic

Why studies on coffee don't necessarily suggest it's good for everyone (even though many think they do!)

Why we can't always trust the interpretations of other scientists

Why research funding is important

How we can avoid bias in our trials

And much more!
