Lab Rat Chat - Episode 26 with Dr. Roy TaylorIn this episode of Lab Rat Chat, Danielle and Jeff chat with Dr. Roy Taylor,  a physician and author, who is currently the Director of Newcastle Magnetic Resonance Centre at Newcastle University.   He has been conducting research on type 2 diabetes since 1978 and in 2011, Taylor showed that the disease was a simple, reversible condition of excess fat within the liver and pancreas. Taylor developed the system now used throughout the United Kingdom for screening for diabetic eye disease, which has resulted in a major reduction in blindness due to diabetes across the UK. He is the author of Life Without Diabetes, a popular guide to understanding and reversing type 2 diabetes and achieving lasting remission (link below).Topics discussed in this episode:Dr. Taylor’s extensive and impressive background as a physician and scientist.What diabetes is and the differences between type 1 and type 2 diabetes.How the use of animals in his early research was crucial in order to understand the disease process.The role of physicians in not only managing their patients through the use of medicine, but in ways to prevent and/or cure their condition through diet and exercise.Purchase Lab Rat Chat merch and help support our podcast and biomedical research!https://labratchat.myteespring.co/Sign up for the Lab Rat Chat newsletter!https://www.amprogress.org/raising-voices/lab-rat-chat/ Resources & Links:Dr. Taylor’s Book: Life Without Diabetes: The Definitive Guide to Understanding and Reversing Type 2 DiabetesReversing Type 2 Diabetes - Newcastle Magnetic Resonance Centre - Newcastle University (ncl.ac.uk)Americans for Medical ProgressAmericans for Medical Progress COVID-19 ResourcesFollow us on Twitter!
