Science Café


Thursday 26th September 2019 - 6:00 pm

We have all been bombarded with conflicting advice regarding what is ‘good’ for us. Here is your chance to hear from two experts who will take us from field to fork, book your place now!

Registered Nutritionist, Lucy Williamson will share the science behind why we should all be nurturing our gut bacteria for our long term health and well being. Come and be fascinated by their many roles from epigenetics (altering the expression of our genes through our food choices) to protection from cancer and allergy, to mood enhancement.

Originally a practicing Vet, Dr Williamson now holds an MSc (Nutrition) from King's College, London, and works in public health to inform and inspire better health for all. With a busy family of her own she understands the need for sharing practical, evidence-based knowledge to give clarity amid confusing 'healthy eating' media messages. Her nutrition consultancy achieves this through teaching in schools, lecturing at the University of Hertfordshire, personalised nutrition plans and working with British food producers to promote healthy and sustainable food choices. She is also the Nutritionist for Love British Food.
