Could the stress of the COVID-19 pandemic be impacting our appetite?

Dr. Jim Swaffield, Lecturer at the University of Alberta School of Business, joins us today to talk about his research on environmental stressors – from financial stress to physical safety to social isolation – and how they impact both our desire to eat and which foods we crave. Check out this interview where TELUS World of Science Edmonton's Staff Scientist Cate sits down with Dr. Swaffield to learn more about these stressors and what we can do to manage that stress and desire to eat.
