Our gut is almost as important to us as our brain or heart, yet very little is known about it. In this very entertaining journey through its winding pathway, author Giulia Enders shows it to be one of the most complex, important, even miraculous parts of our anatomy. Scientists are only just waking up to the complex role of the gut in everything from obesity and allergies to Alzheimers. Everything from the basics of nutrient absorption to the latest science linking bowel bacteria with depression comes under her scrutiny. Entertaining and informative.
