Nearly 30 per cent of the world’s population is overweight and ‘diabesity’ is an increasing problem: diabetes, brought on by obesity, which in turn causes damage to the brain, heart, nerve and kidneys. So what can we do to prevent it or is it too late? Join ‘fat controller’ Ashley Grossman, professor of endocrinology, as he discusses potential ground-breaking medical techniques to lose weight effortlessly and what it may mean for the future of the human race. Ashley will be chatting to science broadcaster (and his daughter) Emily Grossman.
Dr Emily Grossman is an expert in molecular biology and genetics. She also trained and worked as an actress and singer, and now combines her skills as a science broadcaster, educator and writer. She is best known as a resident expert on ITV’s The Alan Titchmarsh Show and Sky1’s fact-based celebrity panel-show Duck Quacks Don’t Echo hosted by Lee Mack.
