Hello, I’m Katy Bradbury, a qualified Nutritional Therapist, private Health Visitor and qualified nurse. I have worked within Women’s Health, Maternal and Children’s Health for many years.
Today’s podcast is titled “The Lowdown on Dairy and Fertility.” In this episode, I run through the complex issue of dairy and fertility. Looking through an evolutionary lens and using the current evidence base, I discuss the pros and cons of dairy for fertility and whether full fat or low fat is best.
