Giles Yeo: Gene Eating

Giles Yeo: Gene Eating

Saturday 2 March, 10am-11am

Al Ras 2, InterContinental, DFC

Authors: Giles Yeo

“The commercialisation of clean eating on social media channels means we’re not always driven to eat clean because we want to live longer with less disease, but because we want to buy in to what looks like a youthful and slim and beautifully lit reality where our curated plates will provide access to an Insta-glamorous life.”

Cambridge geneticist Dr Giles Yeo has dedicated over 20 years to studying how genes influence our eating habits. Instead of looking at how we have become obese, Gene Eating tackles the question of why some people eat more than others.
