Eating to Keep it Beating

  • The Trampery

Tickets: HERE

When we're young, it’s easy to take our heart health for granted. Our heart is the centre of our cardiovascular system and is vitally responsible for just about everything that gives us life. We think of heart disease as being a problem for older, inactive men with high blood pressure. However, it can strike at any time, without warning and can affect anybody, male or female, old or young. It doesn’t discriminate. Ladies, we’re not immune! 

Interestingly, although heart disease is one of the biggest killers in the UK, many of its risk factors can be modified. The foods we eat can dramatically affect our heart’s overall health. The Rooted Project are really excited to link up with the nation’s heart charity and the largest independent funder of cardiovascular research, the British Heart Foundation (BHF).

We’re bringing together a panel of nutrition experts to talk about all the things you can do to keep your heart ticking smoothly. From looking at the healthiest populations around the world who’ve got this nailed, to tackling mixed messages surrounding coconut oil, eggs and saturated fat, we’ll be cutting through the confusion and busting some myths. Plus, we’ll have an exciting goody bag and 100% of the profits will go towards helping the BHF continue the important work they do.

DIET & YOUR DNA

DIET & YOUR DNA

Do our genes control our destiny and should we be eating a diet based on our own DNA? Cambridge University geneticist Dr Giles Yeo will be talking about the fascinating world of our genes and how they can influence our weight and our health. Spending much of his career studying obesity, Giles has more recently been investigating how the brain controls our food choices and influences our eating behaviour.

He’s also been exploring the science behind personalised gene tests, which are now widely available online. Companies selling these tests claim they can identify genes related to diseases including heart disease or obesity and that, using this information, give you dietary advice which will improve your health or help you lose weight. The idea of predicting our future’s health seems very appealing, but are these tests worth us parting with our cash? Find out more about the link between your DNA and your diet by coming along on Thursday 30th March 2017.
