On this edition of The Prof Noakes Podcast, we briefly look at what the purpose of the Noakes Foundation is and learn how they are trying to change nutrition and dietetics teaching around the world to become evidence based, as well as looking at the reversibility of Type 2 Diabetes.

Brad Brown also chats to Prof Noakes regarding the age old question of Cholesterol.
