Dark Matter — Signed copy
Dr James Kinross

Non-member price: £16 + postage
Member price: £12.80 + postage

From a world-leading microbiome scientist and surgeon with over two decades of experience comes Dark Matter – the definitive book on the science of the microbiome and how unlocking its potential can protect our health, our immunity and our planet.

Why are we living longer, but not happier?

The microbiome – our inner ecosystem of viruses, bacteria and other microbes – is critically important to our health and wellbeing. It is given to us by our mothers at birth, adapts with us as we age, influences our moods, determines how fast we run and even who we choose as a partner.

But we can look to reverse this damage. Drawing on cutting-edge research and years of clinical experience, Kinross shows how to unpack the microbiome’s secrets, explaining that if we work with, not against, our microbes, we can live better, healthier lives.
