Kicking off our second podcast with The Latest, Fiona & Ian discussed Sugar by Half, who promote action to protect current and future generations from the health dangers of added sugar. This initiative was started by Prof Peter Brukner who is specialist sports and exercise physician currently working with the Australian cricket team and a team of other health professionals. Shane Watson, Aussie Cricketer is a big supporter of this initiative.

The Topic for this podcast is the documentary film What’s With Wheat. Fiona and Ian discuss wheat and gluten and some of the health issues that are now being linked to their consumption. We also look at why wheat has become such a big issue today, and what are some of the changes that have occurred including changes to the plant, what monocultures are, the addition of chemicals and the effects on our microbiome.
