Biography introducing this seminar presentation.

Professor David A. Booth has research doctorates in biochemistry and in psychology.

A main area of his research since 1964 has been the neural, digestive, metabolic, sensory and social influences on, and effects of, choices and intakes of foods and drinks, and how all these causal processes interact in the individual’s life.

One major effort in this area has been to characterise and to measure the least fattening customs of eating within local environments. This talk highlights a pilot study conducted in the School of Dietetics and Human Nutrition in McGill University that is now being extended by a nutrition graduate and obesity dietitian from Mexico who is studying for a research degree in Psychology with David Booth and colleagues at the University of Birmingham.
