The Zoo Inside You

BY MONICA METZ
@ VOL 23 ON JUN 13, 2017

Modern life is often a war between needs and desires. We know we should make a healthy dinner. But we order take-out anyway. We calendar in a workout, but skip it when someone invites us to happy hour. But what if it didn’t always come down to needs vs. desires? What if we somehow got ourselves to a place where they became nearly the same thing? Monica Metz will discuss the mysterious microbiome within you, and why what you do and eat today will affect what you crave tomorrow.
