What's it about?

It doesn’t matter if it’s a grain of wheat, sugar, or salt—we all know that these tiny specks of power played important roles in human history. Their influence not only extends beyond the historical to affect our weight and physical health—but they also have a strong impact on our brains and mental health, too. In these Blinks you’ll learn how these influential grains enact their power over our bodies, how you can counteract that, and discover the politics behind these tiny particles of power.
