Along the Food Chain with Michael Olson…

1137: The Science of Eating What We Eat

Neuroscientist Rachel Herz, PhD,
Author of Why You Eat What You Eat

To keep on the move, we must keep shoveling fuel into that burner in our belly. And so we eat, and eat and eat! But some among us pause on occasion to wonder at all the eating we do. And for them we pause to ask….

Why do we eat what we eat?

Hello out there… You are tuned in to the 1137th edition of the Food Chain, right here on the GCN Radio Network… Or hey… Perhaps you’re among our friends way over there in Akourdalia, who are tuned in as we stream along on the Food Chain page at metrofarm.com….

Well, whoever you are, and wherever you are, welcome aboard, I am Michael Olson, your host for this hour of “What’s-Eating-What” radio, with engineer Griffin Queener on the controls and producer Sara Belle Lin on the stories….

FOLKS…

For a moment– just a moment– think of the human body as a coal-burning locomotive…

If you want that locomotive to pull a train of cars laden with passegeners and freight, you must shovel coal into the burner, and keep shoveling coal into the burner, until you get the train to your destination….

The shoveling is something you must do… You have no choice in the matter… and so you shovel, and shovel and shovel without thought… because, really, there is nothing much to think about!

This shoveling without thought is, in many respects, how so many of us lead our lives…

Our bodies, like those coal burning locomotives, need fuel to burn… To get up and go, and keep going, we must shovel food into that burner in our bellies, and keep shoveling food, for as long as we want to get up and go….

And so we shovel, and shovel and shovel without thought… because, really, there is nothing much to think about!

But wait… Maybe there is something to think about… Maybe the fuel we shovel into that burner in our bellies effects the performance of our bodies, and how we move through our lives…

If such is the case, perhaps we should pause and ask…

Why do we eat, what we eat?
