Diabetes is a devastating disease that takes years from our lives and life from our years. In 2016, The Straits Times reported that our adult diabetes rate is the second highest in the world, that 12 per cent of people here have pre-diabetes, and one-third of those with pre-diabetes are likely to develop Type 2 diabetes: http://www.straitstimes.com/singapore/singapore-is-no-2-nation-with-most-diabetics-5-things-about-diabetes. The ST article does not mention animal based foods.
We are fortunate that Dr Chan Tat Hon, a medical doctor and who personally practises a whole food plant-based lifestyle has agreed to give us a talk on the relationship between lifestyle and diabetes, with a special focus on areas of specific relevance to those of us who are on plant-based diet.
Dr Chan is passionate about the relationship between lifestyle, especially diet on lifestyle related diseases such as diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, metabolic disorders and obesity. Dr Chan see patients and conducts lifestyle modification programmes in both the government sector as well as his own private practice at Novena Medical Centre.
The talk will last 40 minutes, followed by 20 minutes for Q&A.
