This breakfast could change your life

Get a taste of this unusual breakfast - the chalky seeds of the Baobab tree mixed with water. It's the way the Hadza hunter-gatherers of East Africa start the morning, and one helping has more fibre in it than the average western diet has in a whole day. Is this what keeps this community remarkably disease-free?
