Drawing on archives and illustrative materials from the Wellcome Library’s collections, this event will explore the work of the medics and scientists who helped shape and publicise nutritional knowledge in the 20th century. From the ‘Bran Gang’ and debates over the evils of highly refined foods to the growth of the modern ‘nutrition media’ in all its complexity, trace the roots of current anxieties over what is and isn’t good to eat.
