Starting on Tuesday, October 18, Dr Smith will expand on this theory with a series of four morning lectures entitled Earth, Life, You and Your Diet.

This will aim to increase our understanding of the food we eat by learning about its chemistry and metabolism, the way that it creates our bodies’ shape and provides us with energy. It will examine the way the food industry and fashions influence our diet, and what effect diet has on health.

The lectures will take place at the William Elder Building in Castlegate, from 10am to noon, on Tuesdays, from October 18 to November 8. The cost of the course is £24, including refreshments.
