Gabor Erdosi on The Root Cause of Diabetes, Disease, and Obesity

Updated: Sep 29, 2023

Gabor Erdosi - Peak Human Podcast


Listen on


Gabor is a food scientist with a master's in molecular biology. He lives in Hungary and is one of these engineers/scientists who I love talking to who look at nutrition differently. He has a very unique perspective because he worked for big food manufacturers.

He spends almost all of his free time researching this stuff to help people understand how bad these processed foods actually are. He has a large community on Facebook where he shares and discusses this information. He also has some great presentations he’s done you can find online.
