Soy. Coconut Oil. Eggs. We get asked about these foods a lot. Are they safe? Should they be avoided at all costs? Today we separate fact from fiction once and for all with Katherine Basbaum, a clinical dietitian for the Heart & Vascular Center at the UVA Health System. Katherine is the perfect person to talk to about this because she received her Master’s in Nutrition Communication at Tufts University, meaning she is good at breaking down the science into soundbites. In this episode, we’ll discuss whether or not soy causes cancer, the truth about eggs and cholesterol, and what the science has to say about coconut oil.
