The brain in your gut | TED Video

Dr John La Puma

In this TED video, a food scientist makes the case for cooking as an evolutionary tool.

He believes (and the data show) there are functioning neurons (we think of them as brain cells) in your intestines — about a hundred million of them.

Heribert Watzke tells us about the “hidden brain” in our gut and the surprising things it makes us feel.

Because so many of the questions nutrition clients ask me are about food and the GI tract, it’s helpful to know that it’s more than a tube.  It holds immune cells, a neurologic system, and creates hormones.

Maybe it’s true–the key to a person’s heart is through his or her stomach…and intestine.
