This blog is all about health and food.
My name is Matthew Bowen. I’m a researcher for an endocrinologist and an honours student at the University of Saskatchewan. My research focus is on the inflammatory and endocrine progression through the states of obesity, metabolic syndrome, and Type II diabetes – particularly the processes involved in iron regulation. My semi-professional/academic research focus is on the reversal of each of those states, and how to use various nutrition and exercise strategies to systematically optimize biological function. All of which is easier said than done.
I’m also an extremely mediocre weightlifter, a local food advocate, drummer, and all around geek who likes to entertain all kinds of thoughts.
