Welcome to Cheltenham Skeptics in the Pub.

Skeptics in the Pub was founded in London by Dr Scott Campbell in 1999. The aim is to provide opportunities for people who are interested in science, skepticism, rationalism and critical thinking to socialise and discuss matters of interest, usually with a guest speaker. There are now over fifty groups across the country. Their websites will give you a great idea of what Skeptics are, what happens at a SitP event and so on.

Cheltenham SitP was conceived in November 2010.

What's the talk about?

This talk will focus on the challenges in determining the role of food and diet in our well-being and longevity and will demonstrate some of the trends in food consumption and patterns of life expectancy from the early 20th Century onwards.

Terry graduated in Chemistry from the University of Sussex and, to avoid having to find a job, hitch-hiked to Afghanistan instead. On returning to the UK he further put off having to work by studying for a PhD in development of flavours in food. He finally landed a job with a major biscuit company, working in R&D. After 10 good years there, he left to join ICI, in a joint venture that developed Quorn and brought it to the market. His final job in the UK was running a team in the largest food consultancy in the world and, after 12 years there, was headhunted to work as Technical Director for one of the major food companies in South Africa. He retired in 2012 but stayed on in Durban for the World Cup before returning to the UK. Since then he has consulted in the UK, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Dubai and Brazil.
