The second lecture in the Metabolism & Nutrition course was delivered by Bert Groen, from the department of Pediatrics. [It was originally planned after the Fat metabolism lecture, which was rescheduled for the day after, due to Janine's absence the previous day.] The unifying thread in this lecture is how metabolic pathways that have evolved for efficient energy use and storage pose serious health threats in the current age of abundant calory-dense food.
