With quirky charm, rising science star Giulia Enders explains the gut's magic, answering questions like: Why does acid reflux happen? What's really up with gluten and lactose intolerance? How does the gut affect obesity and mood? Enders's beguiling manifesto will make you finally listen to those butterflies in your stomach: they're trying to tell you something important.
A Sunday Times bestseller — now with revised and expanded content on the exciting new science about the gut-brain link.
Our gut is as important as our brain or heart, yet we know very little about how it works and many of us are too embarrassed to ask questions.
In Gut, Giulia Enders breaks this taboo, revealing the latest science on how much our digestive system has to offer.
From our miraculous gut bacteria — which can play a part in obesity, allergies, depression and even Alzheimer’s — to the best position to poo, this entertaining and informative health handbook shows that we can all benefit from getting to know the wondrous world of our inner workings.
