Lecture 3 – You are what you eat

There’s an old saying that ‘you are what you eat’. John Krebs’ third lecture explores how the foods you eat are turned into you. Your whole body is made of the food you eat; a living record of the meals you’ve had and the exercise you’ve done. With the help of demonstrations, experiments, and some of the audience’s hair, this lecture shows that when we say ‘you are what you eat’, it’s really true.
