As we're hit by an ever-worsening tsunami of lifestyle-related chronic disease, the message that "eating real food saves lives" is more vital than ever.

In this very straight-talking conversation, Dr Aseem Malhotra explains what everybody urgently needs to know about our food, to protect our precious health. I also share my own, first-hand experiences of the heartbreaking effects of poor diet.

Dr Malhotra is one of the most influential cardiologists in Britain and is spearheading a much-needed campaign against excess sugar consumption. He is co-author of The Pioppi Diet and author of the brand new book, The 21-Day Immunity Plan.

Here's a hard-hitting video I made with Dr Malhotra on Lynda and Mike Sackett - a very emotive example of how our diet can harm or heal us: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bg9sfqjjubM&t=18s

Here's a short animation I made about Professor John Yudkin, who also spoke out against the harmful effects of sugar -and was also bullied for it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uhON1RaysmA&t=1s
