Directed by award-winning filmmaker Stephen David, known for his historical documentaries like Sons of Liberty and The Men Who Built America, this docuseries takes us inside our own bodies.

In this episode, we look at the role of food in the body, and explore how the meals we eat get turned into energy. Through interviews and scientific data, Human: Fuel shows us what happens inside our gut, and the crucial role played by the organisms that live there.
