About the Man Behind the Science of Oils and Fats - Dr Udo Erasmus

Udo Erasmus received his B.Sc. Honours Degree in Zoology with a major in Psychology from the University of British Columbia. In addition, he took graduate studies in Genetics and Biochemistry. He also earned an MA in Counselling Psychology from the Alfred Adler School of Professional Psychology in Chicago.

Poisoned by pesticides, he turned his attention to the field of nutrition, and began a personal odyssey back to health. Since the publication of his landmark book, Fats and Oils, in 1986, which earned him a Ph.D. in Nutrition, he has become an internationally recognised authority on the subject of fats, cholesterol and human health, and a sought-after media personality.

He has travelled extensively throughout North America and Europe as a public educator, known for his clarity of style and his sense of humour. He excels in translating technical and research language from scientific literature into understandable English. He makes the important practical discoveries of science accessible to consumers and industry.

In addition, Udo runs an extensive consulting service from his home base in Vancouver, Canada. Topics have included fats and oils, health, anti-oxidants, flax, cholesterol control and cardiovascular health, water and air quality, early family dynamics, social issues, goal setting, and personal fulfilment.

His current passions include turning the field of human health and the field of human nature into systematically teachable disciplines. Lack of ambitious projects has never been his problem!
