The Royal Society of Chemistry powers new health podcast - The Food Clinic with Dr Yemisi
By: Remedy Studios
Hosted by Dr Yemisi Bokinni, a medical doctor and writer, the series is determined to make science-based nutrition insights culturally relevant to Africa and its diaspora audiences. Based on the premise of the power of food as medicine, episodes range from 'nutrition in sickle cell' to 'the health benefits of fermented foods', 'African medicinal herbs', and 'reversing diabetes through diet'.
Speaking from Lagos, Nigeria, a quote from Dr Yemisi Bokinni: " I want to be international about ensuring the content on the podcast is relevant, what are the health benefits of ewedu vs spinach? cocoyam vs potatoes? Insights like this are not very easy to find, so I decided to create a space dedicated to it. September is Sickle Cell awareness month and a recent episode is on the theme of nutrition in Sickle Cell where I interview a world-renowned specialist dietician who has been researching this theme for over 8 years! We explore science-based diet tips for Sickle Cell Warriors and I'm looking forward to more people gaining these insights. I'm incredibly grateful for the support of The Royal Society of Chemistry and I'm excited for what Season 2 will bring. We're already working on it! It will certainly be more than just a podcast. More content dedicated to the power of food to influence our health for the better."
