Virtual lecture with Tim Spector: why almost everything we have been told about food is wrong

In this online event Tim Spector debunks food myths, encouraging us to rethink our whole relationship with food.

Is salt really the enemy? Is all processed food bad for us? Does red meat give you cancer?

Tim Spector reveals why almost everything we have been told about food is wrong. He questions every diet plan, official recommendation, miracle cure or food label we encounter, and encourages us to rethink our whole relationship with food.
