The Diet Myth: The Real Science Behind What We Eat

Hay Festival 2016 , 
Drawing on the latest cutting-edge science, Spector explores the hidden world of the microbiome, and demystifies the common misconceptions about nutrition. Only by understanding what makes our microbes tick and interact with our bodies can we take steps to improve our health by increasing the diversity of microbe species living in our guts.
Spector is Professor of Genetic Epidemiology at King's College London and Director of the TwinsUK Registry. Since 2014 he has been leading the largest UK's largest open-source science project, British Gut to understand the microbial diversity of the human gut.
