‘Let them eat cake!’ said the Queen, and they did. Two centuries plus after the demise of Marie Antoinette, the poor are fat and the rich are thin,’ says Steve Jones, Professor of Genetics at University College London in his new book Darwin’s Island. ‘Across the globe, death from excess has, for the first time in history, overtaken that from deficiency.

Good eating, good health and good reading.
