The Fat Controller
With more than 1 in 3 UK adults now being considered obese, ‘diabesity’ is a growing problem: diabetes, brought on by obesity, which in turn causes brain, heart, nerve and kidney damage. But could we prevent it? According to new research we might soon be taking drugs to stop ourselves from over-eating, or flicking a biological switch to effortlessly burn off our fat.
Join science broadcaster and expert in molecular biology Dr. Emily Grossman, and her father Ashley Grossman, Professor of Endocrinology at the University of Oxford and expert in the region of the brain controlling hormones and appetite, as they discuss potential new ground-breaking medical techniques to lose weight effortlessly... and what these may mean for our future.
