How to stay healthy – what the latest science really tells us.

Michael Mosley


Key note speaker, Michael Mosley

Television presenter, producer and broadcast journalist

Our understanding of nutrition and exercise have been transformed in recent years by a wave of new scientific discoveries. Yet there is a huge gap between the latest findings and the advice that is routinely given. Can you really get most of the benefits of exercise in just a few minutes a week? Why do diets work for some people and not for others? What are the best ways to reduce your risk of heart disease and cancer? Through his work as a science journalist for the BBC, Michael Mosley has come across surprising research about what really contributes to long-term health.
