Food is our greatest ally for good health, but the question of what to eat has never seemed so complicated. ZOE’s Tim Spector has pioneered a science-based approach to nutrition, encouraging us to forget misleading notions of calorie counts or nutritional breakdowns.
Live on stage and via livestream, he will draw on over a decade of cutting-edge scientific research, along with his own personal insights, to deliver a new and comprehensive guide to what we should all know about food today.
Taking a wide-angle lens on everything from environmental impact and food fraud to allergies and deceptive labelling, Prof Spector will show us the many wondrous and surprising properties of everyday foods, which scientists are only just beginning to understand.
Empowering, practical, wide-ranging and filled with intriguing insights, this talk will offer nothing less than a new approach to how to eat – for our health and the health of the planet.
