We are PhD candidates at the School of Kinesiology and Health Studies at Queen's University. Besides being researchers in clinical physiology, we are both also avid health and fitness enthusiasts. The purpose of our blog (www.obesitypanacea.blogspot.com) as well as this complimentary podcast is to critically evaluate new commercial products, recent scientific research, or popular news related to obesity, weight-loss, exercise, diet, and everything in between.
