Why losing a few pounds is good for you
Tuesday 6 October 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 6:45 pm
Two-thirds of adults in England are overweight. Being overweight is linked to a wide range of diseases, including diabetes and some cancers. Now it’s clear that being overweight can also increase the risk of serious COVID-19 complications. Professor Susan Jebb examines evidence for the health benefits of losing weight, why even short-term diets may be good in the long-term and how, if everyone loses just a small amount, together we can make a big difference to the nation’s health.
