Nikki's new book Pretty Unhealthy examines our obsession with looking healthy. There’s a gym on every street corner and ‘wellness’ is our number one priority. Sales of gym memberships, activewear and superfoods continue to sky rocket and yet, we are sicker, unhappier and poorer than ever before. Dr Nikki Stamp sifts through the science and the sales pitches to work out why we equate beauty with health, why social media can hurt and help our mental and physical health and what we can do about it.
