Doctor in the House: Nutrition in Malaysia – Rhetoric or Action?

Dr George Lee returns to discuss the latest medical news. Expect deep insights delivered with generous humour. There is an epidemic killing hundreds of thousands of Malaysian every year – and it’s not COVID-19. It is the epidemic of non-communicable diseases (NCDs), such as diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, cancers, chronic kidney disease, and many others, that are among the leading causes of death and disability in Malaysia. What does the recently-released National Health and Morbidity Survey 2019 tell us about our national strategies, especially with regard to getting Malaysians to change their behaviours? Dr Tee E Siong, President of the Nutrition Society of Malaysia, joins Dr George Lee to zoom in on nutrition problems that lead to NCDs.
