The Food Hospital 3/6

8:00pm Wednesday, October 3 on C4

The Food Hospital experts look at how monitoring our urine can reveal a lot about what is going on inside our bodies. Dr Pixie McKenna meets Dr Lynne Howells from Leicester University to look into claims that a spice used in our favourite curries – turmeric – may become an important weapon in the fight against bowel cancer. Visitors to The Food Hospital include Adam, a student suffering from very bad acne; Charlene, a healthcare worker who has an addiction to cola; and Ellie, who hasn’t had a good night’s sleep in nearly 30 years.
