Description

Professor of Genetic Epidemiology, Tim Spector, is today’s guest interview.


Tim shares with us the importance of considering our own gut microbiome when making nutrition choices.


He explains how the gut microbiome trumps genetics in determining how we respond to diet and why we develop disease. We then find out about why generalised nutrition advice fails and how personalised prediction models might soon give us highly individualised diet recommendations.


We also go into discussing what data on twin studies tells us, other important factors such as circadian rhythms, timing of meals, fasting, microbes and drug efficacy as well as probiotics, prebiotics, the carnivore diet and the effect of location on the microbiome.
