The Brain In Your Gut

I just came across this interesting talk on TED by food scientist Heribert Watzke. Did you know you have functioning neurons in your intestines - about a hundred million of them? Watzke tells us about the "hidden brain" in our gut and the surprising things it makes us feel.

He also claims that cooking has made us what we are and suggest that instead of omnivores we should be called coctivors - from the Latin word coquere = to cook.

I'm not sure how much I would agree with what he says, but it's certainly interesting to listen to. Food for thought, you could say!
