Metabolic Disease


Unit 1Unit 2Unit 3Unit 4Unit 5

We eat to live. We also eat for fun, for coping, and for feeding the trillions of microbacteria that live inside us. What happens after you swallow a bite? In five units we’ll explore what makes food ‘food’, how our bodies use it, what can go wrong with how our bodies use it, how scientists (and you!) figure out if a food is ‘healthy’ or not to eat, and more.
