Nuclear Techniques for Better Nutrition

Nuclear Explained takes an in-depth look at nuclear technology and how it impacts modern life. Complementing a series of explanatory articles, the podcast features experts and scientists from around the world discussing the safe, secure, and peaceful uses of nuclear technology.


About the episode:

Good nutrition is essential for good health and well-being. Nuclear techniques, including stable isotope techniques, play an important role in the development, monitoring, and impact of interventions against malnutrition. Stable isotopes can be used, for example, to understand how the human body is composed or how much of an ingested nutrient is absorbed and metabolized.
