John Cryan contributes to the BBC - Made of Stronger Stuff episode "The Appendix"

  Our bodies reflect change in the world around us. Psychologist Kimberley Wilson and Dr Xand van Tulleken take a journey around the human body - one body part at a time - asking, how much control do we have? In this episode, they discover the truth about an organ long dismissed as useless: the appendix. Kimberley Wilsons "Gut Guru", Prof John Cryan explains the relationship between the gut microbiome and Parkinson's disease, citing a recent brain imaging study that suggests the existence of a "Gut-First" Parkinson's disease.
