Doctor in the House: Is Fibre The New Superfood?

Dr George Lee returns to discuss the latest medical news. Expect deep insights delivered with generous humour. Many of us do not consume enough fibre in our food, but a recent review by the World Health Organization has found that it can reduce the chances of heart attacks, strokes and diseases such as type-2 diabetes. On today’s show, we sit down to discuss the findings of this review and how can we incorporate these guidelines into the Malaysian diet.

Produced by: Kelly Anissa and Tee Shiao Eek

Presented by: Meera Sivasothy
