  The Food Files 3 食物偵探 3
by Evan Witkowski
You are what you eat, so you had better learn some more about the food and drinks you put in your body.


  From appetizers and main courses to desserts and drinks, everyone loves to experience the joy of eating. But with all the options available these days, it can be hard to know where the food comes from, and what kind of impact it has on the planet and your body. Coming back for its third season, The Food Files on National Geographic Channel (NGC) delves into different aspects of food and beverages to examine the health benefits and drawbacks of certain dishes and diets. The host, self-described foodie and health guru Nikki Muller, takes viewers on a tour of where certain types of food are produced and processed, such as farms, factories, restaurants, and cafés. Previous episodes from seasons one and two have covered a wide variety of dishes and interesting tidbits about them. Some topics covered by the show included the addictiveness of chocolate, the nutritional content of soy sauce, and the physical effects of drinking coffee. They discovered the healthiest carbohydrate, compared designer eggs to farm fresh eggs, investigated the ingredients of curry and the health benefits of spices, and even pointed out the specific differences between organic fruits and vegetables and those grown with chemicals.
  Muller uses her own expertise and interviews other leading experts in the field of food, including doctors, scientists, and nutritionists. She follows the line of food production and explains the ingredients on the labels of some of our favorite foods in the world, while shedding light on things to look out for when trying to eat healthy. Be conscious of what kind of food and drinks you are consuming, and don't miss the latest season of The Food Files on NGC.
