Podcast with Kamal Patel

Kamal Patel is a nutrition researcher with an MPH and MBA from Johns Hopkins University, and is on hiatus from a PhD in nutrition in which he researched the link between diet and chronic pain. He has published peer-reviewed articles on vitamin D and calcium as well as a variety of clinical research topics. Kamal has also been involved in research on fructose and liver health, mindfulness meditation, and nutrition in low income areas. He is currently the Director of Examine which is an independent and unbiased encyclopedia on supplementation and nutrition.

In this podcast, Kamal and I discussed fructose. Some of the topics we go over are:

1. What is fructose?

2. How is it metabolized differently from glucose in the body?

3. What started the fear for fructose consumption?

4. Is there a difference between fructose consumed from food and pure fructose consumption?

5. What does the evidence show for fructose consumption in regards to liver health and fat loss?
