Dr. Salih Solomon_ presentation_San Diego4.1 out of 5 stars5 star52%4 star8%3 star39%2 star0%1 star0%23 ratings2313:07


How can we turn the epidemics of obesity, cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes around in a country? Dr. Salih Solomon is a researcher at The Noakes Foundation in South Africa, and talks about this in his presentation from the Low Carb USA presentation.

South Africa is known as a country where LCHF diets (often called “Banting” there) have become very popular in recent years. But it is also a country facing huge problems with obesity and diabetes, not least in the less wealthy segments of the population.

So what interventions exactly are necessary to turn this problem around? That’s what this talk is about.
