The new landmark documentary series Australia’s Health Revolution with Dr Michael Mosley examines the effects of Australia’s fastest growing chronic disease, type 2 diabetes. Working alongside Indigenous exercise physiologist Ray Kelly, Dr Michael Mosley puts his own body on the line to demonstrate the latest science and to show just how quickly you can eat your way into, and out of, ill health.
Joining eight brave Australians, Dr Michael Mosley embarks on a confronting journey to show that pre-diabetes and type 2 diabetes can be reversed through drastic diet changes and lifestyle adjustments, rather than medicine.
The average Australian diet, almost half of which comprises ultra-processed foods, can lead to weight gain, increased blood sugar levels and blood pressure. Weight gain is contributing to the surge in rates of type 2 diabetes.
With almost 200 Australians diagnosed with type 2 diabetes every day, this new series shines a light on an important issue, and illustrates the impact that the right lifestyle and dietary changes can have on chronic diseases like type 2 diabetes.
