    Hi Richard,
    As a doctor & with a keen interest in exercise, nutrition & fitness, I am watching your program tonight with curiosity. In daily practice, I see many obese adults & children. It is a sorry sight and inherently dangerous for the future. In Ireland, like alcohol intake, there is a complete ignorance of nutrition and food balance. We really need to amend our dietary intake towards the French one, albeit avoiding smoking!

    Therefore, I thought you might be interested in this documentary by Dr Mike Mosely that I saw recently. It gives a hint as to how this obesity epidemic might be combatted quite easily and effectively if people are willing. See what you think & I would appreciate feedback:

    Dr Cian McDermott
