Here’s the latest special report in our national newspaper – the New Zealand Herald covering the current “fat debate”. Its a good read and gets a bit into the personalities and egos involved.

Second bit for the day…if you have time enjoy this short clip showing the evolution of humans into the sedentary sugar eaters we are today.  Its a fun watch

I am Grant Schofield, Professor of Public Health at Auckland University of Technology and director of the university's Human Potential Centre (HPC) located at the Millennium Campus in Auckland, New Zealand. My research and teaching interests are in wellbeing and chronic disease prevention especially reducing the risk and eventual mortality and morbidity from obesity, cardiovascular disease, and diabetes. I live by the motto "be the best you can be" and have a strong commitment to peak performance in which I also do consulting work. I’ve been interested in human health and performance for my whole career. I started in psychology, went into sport and exercise psychology, then into public health, especially physical activity, then obesity. There have been some twists and turns along the way, which are the reasons for why I do what I do – you can read about those in my first blog entry. I want to know how we can be the best we can be. This crosses disciplines such as biology, medicine, pubic health, and productivity management. The cornerstones are nutrition, exercise, sleep, neuroscience, psychology and wellbeing. In my blog, I cover these topics under the broad heading of the Science of Human Potential.

One thought on “Butter is back in NZ”

  1. Why should we eat margarine – I read somewhere that one of the ingredients is used in paint. Butter is pure – I only eat butter now. Tastes a lot better and I know what is in it. Margarine is a bunch of numbers.
