Sally Norton, MPH - Oxalates, the Hidden Plant Toxins in Many Keto Foods

September 6, 2019 / by Scott

Sally Norton (@sknorton), MPH is an expert in oxalates - a plant toxin found in many common “health” foods such as spinach and almonds that can cause many health disorders. Sally has a degree in nutrition from Cornell University and a Masters of Public Health from the University of North Carolina. She managed a five-year, National Institute of Health-funded program at the UNC Medical School. I had the pleasure of meeting Sally at Ketofest this July in Connecticut and she’s as friendly, helpful, and excited as she is wise and ambitious.

You can find Sally on her website, LinkedIn, or Instagram!
