How to be healthy

In How to be Healthy we investigated the health tips and diets that claim to offer protection against disease and uncover what you should be feeding your body in the fight against infection.

Read about the studies and watch the films in our interactive player. You can also get some Takeaway Tips to help your body fight disease.

The Evolution Diet

We travel back in time and investigate the 'Evo Diet' to discover if what our primitive ancestors ate holds the secret to combating the diseases of western civilisation.

Fart Pants

With an unusual choice of underwear we uncover just how much gas a person produces and what bacteria has to do with it.

Garlic and Erectile Dysfunction

Testing one of many well known claims made on behalf of this wonder plant we ask can eating garlic help men get their erections back and minimise the risk of heart failure?

The High Fibre Diet

Can a high fibre diet sort out internal congestion problems and potentially reduce the risks of bowel cancer?

Prebiotics Vs Probiotics

With the help of a team of ranchers we investigate into the benefits of probiotics and prebiotics and the benefits of 'friendly bacteria'.
