    Hailed as the Godfather of Nutrition, Christopher is here today to delve into his groundbreaking research conducted for the new Netflix’s series ‘You Are What You Eat’ - the study of plant-based vs omnivore diets in pairs of twins. 
    Discover which diet comes out on top so that you can make the best choice for your body.
