Using Extreme Environments To Tackle The Obesity Crisis ft. Dr Ant Shepherd

University of Portsmouth researchers are using techniques, normally reserved for athletes, to help aid weight loss and address the challenges of diabetes.

 

In the latest episode of Life Solved, Dr Ant Shepherd takes us through a unique project to investigate how altitude and temperature could be of benefit to millions of people in the UK.

 

The project is currently taking place in the 'Extreme Environments Laboratory' at the University Of Portsmouth, using both state-of-the-art techniques but also more familiar features like hot tubs!

 

In the podcast Ant takes us through the results of the experiments that have already been conducted and explains why he thinks it is entirely possible that the technology needed to address the obesity crisis could be an integral part of people's homes in the future.
