Episode Fifty Five

  • Dr James Muecke's mission - the 2020 Australian of the Year is passionate about fighting blindness, specifically blindness as a result of type 2 diabetes, which is the leading cause of blindness in adults. 
  • Blindness and type 2 diabetes - how the growing epidemic of type 2 diabetes in Australia can lead to blindness as a complication.
  • Reducing the incidence and effect of type 2 diabetes with low carb, real food - why type 2 diabetes is largely preventable, and why 98% of the loss of vision due to type 2 diabetes is avoidable.
  • The potency of real food, low carb nutrition - why simply reducing our dietary intake of carbohydrates can lower insulin, reduce blood pressure, dissipate a fatty liver, and reverse metabolic dysfunction. 
  • Why food truly is medicine - what you eat really is the most powerful way you can prevent and reverse chronic disease.
  • The importance of understanding what it means to be metabolically healthy - why most people wrongly equate being healthy with how they look or a number on the scale, as opposed to being truly, metabolically healthy.   
  • The failings and flaws of the Health Star Rating system - why the Health Star Rating system is inherently biased towards the food industry and needs a complete overhaul.
