His name is Ben Greenfield and he is one of the most influential health and fitness bloggers on the planet, particularly in the fascinating field of biohacking. “Bio-what”, I hear you say….Well, biohacking is essentially about taking the best information from the health sciences to create simple, impactful and positives changes to your health.
