The Daffodils are bringing welcome colour to the garden and Magnolia blossoms are on the cusp of bursting forth as I type this. It’s definitely my favourite time of year! This newsletter will focus on a subject that I feel genuine passion about – gut health and the gut microbiome!
What is ‘gut health’ – is it merely an absence of gut disease? ‘Good for gut health’ is a term often emblazoned on food packaging, though rarely do they explain what aspect of the food validates the claim.
It’s no wonder the general public occasionally lose faith with healthcare and science! A small column on page 19 of THE WEEK with an eye-catching headline in red: ‘The fad for gluten-free’, really does a disservice in the name of ‘Health & Science’, . . . well of course it caught my eye!
