Kakana Dina: Diet and Health in the Pacific Islands

Pacific island populations have experienced dramatic changes in their diets and lifestyles since Western contact. This presentation will describe the dietary practices and health of traditionally-living Pacific islanders, and the trends that have emerged since the arrival of industrial food.

Stephan Guyenet PhD, is a health researcher with a particular interest in the nutritional causes of modern, non-infectious diseases. He received a bachelor of science degree in biochemistry from the University of Virginia, and a doctorate in neurobiology at the University of Washington. His journey into nutrition and health research began when he learned that modern chronic disorders such as cardiovascular disease, obesity, metabolic syndrome, diabetes, tooth decay and cancer are rare among a number of traditionally-living populations throughout the world. His interest deepened as he read about the modern diseases that invariably followed industrial Western foods into these cultures. The implications of this reading, along with the poor state of mainstream diet-health information, drove him to seek answers in the biomedical research literature. This culminated in the creation of a free weblog, Whole Health Source. He currently researches body fat regulation at the University of Washington, and writes articles for Whole Health Source in his spare time. He also enjoys cooking traditional foods and exploring the Pacific Northwest's magnificent mountains on foot.
