The Food Hospital

The Food Hospital

The pioneering specialist factual series is back, examining the science behind using food as medicine. Last series, we proved that food can be a powerful healer and now we’re pushing the boundaries to treat an even broader range of illnesses and ailments. At the hospital, patients have detailed consultations with GP Gio Miletto, specialist consultant Shaw Somers, and dietitian Lucy Jones, before being assigned particular foods and advice on how to integrate them into their diets or leave them out completely. We also ask the general public to become human guinea pigs in the name of science whilst Dr Pixie McKenna is on the hunt for the heroes of the food world.
