About the Event

Sugar or fat? Laziness or poverty? Gut microbes or genes? We’re all getting fatter and food choice has never felt more complicated. Anthony Warner, aka The Angry Chef (The Truth About Fat) and University of Cambridge geneticist and TV presenter Dr Giles Yeo (Gene Eating) delve into the latest theories, scrutinize diet advice and provide us with evidence-based science that everyone can digest. Chaired by writer and publisher George Miller.
