Food, Chaos, and Quantum Physics

Food studies in our scientific model are based on the hard sciences; namely, chemistry and physics, especially thermodynamics (which has given us the calorie concept). There are a number of new sciences that have emerged during the 20th century, and it's time that their insights were applied to help us understand different, more nuanced aspects of food. Dr. Colbin did her doctoral dissertation using systems theory, complexity theory, chaos theory, and some ideas from quantum physics for a new understanding of how food affects our health. If you are looking for a holistic/wholistic theoretical framework, come join her for a clear, down-to-earth exploration of these fascinating concepts.
