About this deal

However, although briefly mentioned here and there, it doesn't account for the socioeconomic or racial aspect of food consumption, which was a bit of a shame. Overall this is an interesting read and his food specific chapters will make think about not just what your food choices do for you but what they do for the planet too. author of The Diet Myth, Spoon-Fed and Food for Life and scientific co-founder of ZOE, the nutrition science company. So I was surprised it did not mention the 2020 paper “Associations of fat and carbohydrate intake with cardiovascular disease and mortality: prospective cohort study of UK Biobank participants” that shows the optimal amount of macronutrients of sugar, starch, fibre, different type of fats and protein. This book suggests on pages 232,233 getting your vit D supply from mushrooms that are fed on daylight but it does not state how much vitamin D/day is required.

Replacing 30% of traditional burger meat with mushrooms or fungi would be the equivalent of taking 2m cars off the road. If we are to combat the epidemic of obesity and health problems, we need a fundamental change in how we view food, diets, and the hidden microbial world inside our bodies. Food For Life has made me a more conscious consumer with regard to animal welfare, climate change and food fraud. Investigating everything from environmental impact and food fraud to allergies, ultra-processed food and deceptive labelling, Spector also shows us the many wondrous and surprising properties of everyday foods, which scientists are only just beginning to understand.Conceptually, he explains, our genes are not fixed entities but more like plastic, able to change shape and evolve, and these changes can be passed on to future generations.

His company, ZOE, launched an app which I and millions of others used to report daily on symptoms, vaccines, etc. The book covers a wide range of topics, including the gut microbiome, food choices, and the impact of food on the planet. His 2015 book The Diet Myth popularised the idea that each of us has a unique and constantly changing gut microbiome that is crucial to our health.

The diets that support longevity vary widely in carbohydrate, fish, dairy and meat intakes, but what they all have in common is that these people eat hardly any highly processed foods. He also talked about the food industry, the environmental impact of producing food, the history of a particular food and so on. Reducing meat consumption can be good for our health as studies have shown that there is an increased risk of heart disease from eating red meat (though less than previously thought), which increases the more portions you eat.
