At 7pm, we present Food Sleuth Radio out of KOPN in Columbia, Missouri. Dietitian Melinda Hemmelgarn helps listeners “think beyond their plates,” connect the dots between food, health and agriculture, and find food truth. In this episode: Bigger doesn’t always mean better. Case in point: fruits and vegetables. Join Food Sleuth Radio host and Registered Dietitian, Melinda Hemmelgarn, for her interview with Donald Davis, Ph.D., who discusses his research at the Biochemical Institute at the University of Texas, Austin. Davis explains the unintended consequences of the Green Revolution, and industrial agriculture’s promises of higher yields. Davis’ research confirmed a decline in nutrient density concurrent with yield increases. Davis discusses heirlooms, and the nutritional benefits of smaller sized fruits. He also disputes the statistics used in the Stanford University study which failed to give organic food the credit it deserves.
