The new head of the NHS Simon Stevens is worried. Worried that if we carry on in the direction we are going then the NHS will not be able to fund the treatment costs for metabolic syndrome and diabetes.
He is about to publish his new 5-year plan in which he will be looking for lifestyle interventions.
Surely LCHF has to be regarded as a strong case for intervention. It is relatively easy to implement, it is proven to work (see my previous post at http://lchf4runners.blogspot.co.uk/2014/06/gps-report-success-when-recommending.html) and the perceived risks are being systematically dismantled with modern research and clinical experience.
Quite frankly Simon, what have you got to lose?
