Research Profile

Tony Sheehy

Biography

Qualifications:

BSc (Nutrition & Food Chemistry) in 1985

MSc (Nutrition) in 1988

PhD (Nutrition) in 1992

Early research interests included folate and vitamin E uptake and tissue distribution in animals; prevention of lipid oxidation in meats from poultry, pigs, cattle and fish; and methods for the determination of vitamins in foods and plasma. More recently my research has focused on the nutrition transition, which is the trend towards Westernisation of the food supply that has been occurring since the middle of the 20th century and is now accelerating in lower- and middle-income countries, as well as among vulnerable indigenous groups around the world. Understanding these changes is a basic requirement for nutritionists because it difficult for individuals to follow advice on how to improve their diets if the underlying nature of the food supply is going in the opposite direction. The achievement of dietary goals set by nutrition authorities is more likely to occur when historical trends in nutrient supply are understood.

Research Interests

My research interests include;

  • Evolutionary nutrition
  • The nutrition transition
  • Nutrient density
  • Vitamin E and health
  • Folate and health
  • Lipid oxidation and natural antioxidants
