Marlow FM 97.5 The Health Show

Marlow FM 97.5 the new community radio was launched on 11th May 2011. Every Tuesday from 9.30-12 The Healthy Mind and Body broadcasts with Dr Shelagh and Ann Garry. The first show went out on the 17th May 2011 with the topic of diets and our obsession with weight. Our guests this week were Sandra Hunt from the Cambridge diet company and Lucy Aphramor from the Health At Every Size (HAES) movement. Both guests presented their views succinctly, which led to a lively debate on the pros and cons of both extreme dieting and complaceny about weight. The panel seemed to come to an agreement that changing eating behaviour alone would never provide a long term solution to maintaining a healthy body, but that a change in the way we think about our bodies and our lifestyle is needed.

The Health headlines this week included the new discovery about a gene believed to be responsible for depression, a DNA strand that can tell our life expectancy and having a bad nights sleep can prevent us from losing weight by lowering our metabolism throughout the following day. Research has also shown that the social group we are in can contribute to weight status not so much from shared ideals but more from shared activities and that there is little evidence for diet being a protective factor in Alzheimer development.
