One of our leading nutrition experts Professor Tim Spector takes a radical new look at the connection between our guts and our health and says we should stop listening to diet fads.

Spector uses latest cutting-edge science and his own research and case studies to show that we are missing one vital link between our diets and our health – the work done by thousands of previously unknown microbes in our guts. He argues that we will only overcome confusion about our diets and restore a healthy balance if we understand the actions of those microbes. It is by embracing diversity rather than fad diets that we will regain the balance of our ancestors.

Spector is professor of genetic epidemiology at King’s College London and hon consultant physician at Guy’s and St Thomas’ Hospital, and is often consulted by television and media for his views on diet. He leads the largest microbiome project in the UK, which is using genetic sequencing to study the bacteria in the guts of 5,000 twins.
