THP 020: UK Doctor Awarded Prize For LCHF Work While Australian Doctor Is Silenced, What Is Going On?

Happiness can essentially be boiled down to three key things; Something to do, Someone to love, & Something to look forward to - Dr Gordon Livingston

Dr Joanne McCormack received the prestigious Royal College of General Practitioners prize for her work helping people with obesity and diabetes using a Low Carb approach. She has teamed up with other colleagues and founded a charity called the Public Health Collaboration with the primary aim of helping educate other medical professionals and the public about the option of adopting an LCHF lifestyle.

It is somewhat ironic that Australian doctor, Gary Fettke was silenced from recommending an LCHF approach while his medical counterpart in the UK is recognised and awarded.
