Updated: Apr 17

Tim Spector Singapore

With the internet providing access to so many health experts and talking heads, we often get asked ‘who can be trusted, to watch or follow online, even to enjoy?’ The answer is not always obvious, as those in the media spotlight have their own area of expertise, biases, even their own unique style of presentation.

Whether you are part of our Singapore or global community, in this series of posts we present some of the key online health leaders whose media channels we enjoy.

Meet Professor Tim Spector; globally renowned scientist, author and personal nutrition expert.

A small disclaimer, we do not necessarily endorse or agree everything that our featured personalities nor their guests might say, but we do enjoy the general direction that they take. Please talk to your doctor, or medical practitioner most familiar with your medical history, before implementing any changes in diet, exercise or lifestyle, especially if you are under treatment.

Your health starts with you! Prioritising your own self-care is the vital first step to improving your health and long-term wellbeing. Wherever you are in your journey to health, at The Whole Health Practice we work with you, to turn knowledge and intent into targeted and effective action.

Stay Healthy,



Tim Spector MD FRCP OBE / Professor of Genetics

Tim Spector, a Professor of Genetic Epidemiology at King’s College London and Honorary Consultant Physician at Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust. He started the TwinsUK study in 1992, which houses one of the world's richest collections of clinical data.

As an expert in personalised medicine and the gut microbiome, he also leads the world’s largest citizen science health project, the Covid Symptom Study app, for which he received an OBE.

With over 900 scientific papers published and recognised as one of the top 100 most cited scientists globally by Google, he is also a best-selling author of four popular books, regularly making media appearances.
