Q&A with Dr. Sarah Elton

A sociologist focused on food systems, Sarah Elton aptly says that she gravitated toward Contexts because it “makes complex ideas… nicely digestible for anyone who wants to read them.” In her new article, “Eating for Two Trillion,” she explains that gut microbes are part of the food system and, “”if we think of the gut as part of the food system, it reorients us away from the privatization of the gut as a personal health issue and it makes us think about food justice. Who has access to the conditions in life that support a healthy gut biome? …And who doesn’t? And why?” This spring 2023 feature article is available to read, download, and share through June 17, 2023 at SAGE.
