What we eat has never seemed as crucial – or complicated. Tim Spector is in the top 1% most-cited scientists on the planet; in Food For Life he draws on cutting-edge research to deliver a comprehensive guide to what we should all know about our greatest ally for good health. Broadcaster Dan Saladino won the Wainwright Prize 2022 and the Guild of Food Writers Book Award for his astonishing Eating to Extinction: The World’s Rarest Foods & Why We Need To Save Them.
