IT REALLY MATTERS WHAT WE EAT

The Grimond Lecture

Recent decades have seen dramatically increased rates of conditions affecting the brain, from neurodivergence among younger people to earlier deterioration amongst older people. We have also seen a radical change in diet. Is there a connection? Yes, there is, says Ann Roberts, of the organisation Think Through Nutrition. Established as a charity in 1984, it’s become the UK’s leading voice on the link between nutrition, brain health and behaviour. She highlights research from many sources, including work on improving diet in prisons. “And,” she says, “while campaigning for policy change, we also help people to make their own small changes to support brain health.”

The annual Grimond Lecture commemorates Jo and Laura Grimond. and their love of bringing forward fresh ideas for society. During his 33 years as Orkney and Shetland’s MP, Jo led the Liberal Party to a national revival with a distinctive radicalism and flair that reached across party boundaries. On retirement in 1983 he was appointed Baron Grimond of Firth. Laura, herself a dynamic campaigner with a long family political tradition, shared the enjoyment of seeking new solutions, at community and national level, an approach we seek to highlight in each Grimond Lecture.
