Journalist and Author
Nina Teicholz is a science journalist and the author of the New York Times bestseller, "The Big Fat Surprise," which upended the conventional wisdom on dietary fat — especially saturated fat — and spurred a new conversation about whether these fats actually cause heart disease. Named a "best book of the year" by the Economist, the Wall Street Journal and Mother Jones, among others, "The Big Fat Surprise" continues to be called a must-read for anyone seeking to understand the amazing story of how we came to believe that fat is bad for our health — and what a better diet might look like.
Teicholz is also the founder of the Nutrition Coalition, a non-profit working to ensure that government nutrition policy is transparent and evidence-based. As a result of her work with the Nutrition Coalition, she’s been asked to testify before the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the Canadian Senate.
Teicholz is a graduate of Stanford University and the University of Oxford. She previously served as the associate director of the Center for Globalization and Sustainable Development at Columbia University.
