While its playful tone and stylish production offer pure entertainment, THE TRUTH ABOUT FOOD is based on hard science — original studies and tests designed specifically for the series. World-renowned cardiothoracic surgeon, best-selling author and Discovery Health’s Chief Medical Correspondent, Dr. Oz, leads audiences on a journey through more than 30 original, groundbreaking experiments that were captured on film from inception to implementation.
Discovery Health and the BBC worked with leading food scientists from around the world, including more than 50 nutritionists, doctors and experts from more than 20 universities, research centers and hospitals in the United Kingdom, the United States and Denmark. Researchers and scientists recruited more than 500 volunteers, many of whom participated in rigorous testing. To gain a better understanding of how food can impact the human body, these volunteers endured everything from exotic diets and changes in environmental conditions to the latest biomedical sensors and internal body scans.
Through it all, THE TRUTH ABOUT FOOD delivers some of the most compelling and groundbreaking nutritional and behavioral science available anywhere. Viewers will see convincing proof of the incredible and sometimes shocking effect of food on the inner workings of the body, from the immune system and appetite to the memory and libido.
