[Extract] Reading the articles for this themed section had me reeling. They are each so individually scrumptious, and together so rich that my head and stomach went in all sorts of different directions at once. Given the speculation tht the enteric nervous sysstem is "our body's second brain", reading these papers stimulated several gut feelings. Certainly, the description of competitive eaters made me feel quite queasy. But as I've argued recently (Probyn, 2016a), feeling seasick and being at all sea can be useful prompts to thinking differently.
