'Trust Me, I'm a Doctor' (BBC series)

Post by Kitkat on 22/10/2014, 21:14

Aw ... Missed it - this week.   Must look out for the repeat (the first one was repeated some other night during the week.)

This new, very informative series started on BBC last week. 'Trust me, I'm a doctor'

Episode 1:
Can we eat the same food and still lose weight? In a world first, Dr Chris van Tulleken discovers how to make some of our favourite meals healthier without changing a single ingredient.

Medical journalist Michael Mosley finds out why getting more sun on our skin can actually be good for us. Surgeon Gabriel Weston travels to the US to witness a remarkable surgical procedure that's helping the paralysed to regain movement.

Also, GPs can prescribe acupuncture on the NHS but does it work? Dr Salehya Ahsan looks at the evidence for this controversial treatment.

Here it is on BBC iPlayer:  arrow  Watch Episode 1 HERE

Hopefully, will get the recordings of the follow-on episodes up here also, so can keep them all together.

This is what Episode 2 was all about (not yet seen):
What do garlic, watermelon and beetroot have in common, apart from being edible? They are all so-called superfoods, of course, and are said to have the power to reduce blood pressure. Seeing as millions of people suffer from alarming levels of stress, guzzling these down could be beneficial - but are the claims valid? Dr Chris van Tulleken is determined to sort out the fact from the hype in the second episode of the series. Michael Mosley also has food on his mind, and in his case it's something that many people crave - sugar. It's been suggested that it is as toxic as tobacco, but is that true? Michael visits leading experts to find out. Plus, Dr Saleyha Ahsan explodes some of the myths surrounding the best way to treat burns

I started watching it last week but switched it over as I thought it was pathetic.

Sunlight can be good for you in small amounts - who'da thought that?

Letting starchy food cool down and/or reheating it later reduces its glycemic index slightly - from one normal value to another normal value. So feckin' what?

Acupuncture seems to have a slight pain relieving effect. So feckin' what? They forgot to mention the effect size is about the same as taking a couple of aspirin...

I thought it was potentially misleading as they were making so much out of trivialities.

I'm with this guy...

Well, I haven't seen the second one yet - but it just so happens that I came across the first episode by accident.  I had been to my (7-week course) 'Move Away from Pre-Diabetes' earlier that day (which consists of an hour exercise and then about an hour nutrition/diet/etc [very sensible] advice and activity.

One thing I liked about this course [it's finished now but they will still monitor everyone individually] was that the dietician dispelled a lot of the myths that get spread around - people asked questions about certain concerns they had heard surrounding food - and she told them straight - "such and such is a myth" - "not scientifically proven - wording misleading etc".

We got lots of homework to do on this course, and I was in the middle of doing some of this when this programme came on TV - talking about the exact same thing that we had been discussing at the course that day! (and was part of the homework!) - saturated fats / fibre / food labels, etc .....

I was actually quite up to date with all this nutritional information etc, as we had covered all this during the Maggie's course (continuing after cancer care) - but I did not know that about the cooling off and re-heating again of pasta, for instance.  For me personally, I was delighted to learn that - and to see that it has been properly researched and proven. ETA: (and your "so what?" - well yes, what - for some people, depending on the circumstances in their life, their health etc - that sort of information, and acting upon it, can mean a huge benefit in one's life and that of one's family - in some cases - like how something like that can actually change how the insulin works in the body etc.)  yes nod
Talking about the benefits of the sun etc and all that other stuff - again, we had all this in our after care group - but you would be surprised the amount of important stuff that people are not aware of (because they listen to and read all the scare stories etc).
