Diet and rheumatoid arthritis
As the cliche goes, you are what you eat. But did you know it might be linked to rheumatoid arthritis?
Honours student Shweta Venkataraman and supervisor Dr Chloe Goldsmith have been investigating the link between diet, the immune system's T-cells and rheumatoid arthritis.
For this research they recruited Fuzzy host Rod, who agreed to provide a detailed account of his weekly diet. From that, they derived a detailed nutrition analysis. They used a blood sample to measure T-cells and later will investigate his epigenetic profile.
Join Shweta, Chloe, Camille and Rod for a fascinating conversation.
