The Health Benefits of Nuts and What Nutritionists Do With Prof. Alison Coates

FEATURING

Alison Coates

INTRODUCTION

Let me introduce you to our guest, Alison Coates.

This week I have an informative discussion with Professor Alison Coates about the health benefits of nuts. Nuts are packed full of healthy monounsaturated fats, antioxidants, vitamins and dietary fibre. Nut consumption is associated with improved cholesterol profile and reduced risk of heart attack to name a few health benefits and, to top it off, they are a relatively inexpensive source of protein.

Alison and I also discuss the numerous roles nutritionists can play in the health space and some of the fascinating research she has been involved with during her career. Alison is currently the president of the Nutrition Society of Australia (NSA) the mission of which is to promote the scientific value and relevance of nutrition science in Australia so she shares some of the excellent ways the NSA does that.
