The Food Programme – That Gut Feeling (part 1)

BBC Radio 4 ran a two part series about Gut Health and Microbiome.

Dan is joined by Tim Spector, Professor of Genetic Epidemiology at King’s College London, and author of The Diet Myth – The Real Science Behind What We Eat. Tim tells the story of how he became fascinated by the gut microbiome and our diet.

It’s a story that’ll change the way you eat. You will learn more about why gut health and having a well balanced gut microbiome is so important to good health and also how it relates to weight issues.

The programme also features a Dutch draper named Antonie van Leeuwenhoek, co-founder of the American Gut Project Jeff Leach, evolutionary biochemist Dr Nick Lane, and Alexandre Meybeck – a Senior Officer at the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organisation.

If you are interested in improving your health then this is well worth a listen!
