Research:

Cody is working on the first clinical trial - a controlled feeding (pilot) trial - examining the effects of a high fruit diet on glycemic control in individuals with type 2 diabetes. He hopes to learn from and apply the rigorous nature of this study to someday investigate the effects of other plant food groups or diets on chronic diseases, namely type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
