Christopher GardnerChristopher Gardner holds a PhD in Nutrition Science and is a Professor of Medicine at Stanford. For 20 years his research has examined potential health benefits of dietary components such as soy, garlic, antioxidants, omega-3 fats, vegetarian diets, and weight loss diets in the general population. More recently his interests have expanded to two new areas. One he calls “stealth nutrition” – which he describes as connecting food choices to social issues such as animal rights and welfare and climate change for the purpose of promoting healthful behavior changes in food habits. The second new area involves looking at “systems approaches” to eating behaviors, such as focusing on the complex web of factors required to acquire, prepare, and present food in university, worksite, and hospital settings.
