What role do our genes play in influencing what we like to eat? And what affect do genes have on body weight? Geneticist, author, and broadcaster Adam Rutherford joins Dr Giles Yeo to explain why how well your body handles certain nutrients is largely due to where in the world your ancestors were living thousands of years ago. Plus, he helps Giles understand why he’s sometimes – but not always – lactose intolerant, and indeed why the majority of us can’t digest lactose as adults.
