Medical Minute discusses reducing fat and improving muscle strength

In this week’s Medical Minute, Dr. Joseph Hobbs, chairman of the Department of Family Medicine at the Medical College of Georgia at Augusta University, discusses a fascinating mouse model study of morbid obesity and diabetes that showed how a daily dose of whole body vibration, like time on a treadmill, reduces body fat and insulin resistance, and also improved muscle and bone strength.

The Medical Minute airs at 8:18 a.m., 1:20 p.m. and 5:18 p.m. every Saturday and Sunday on the 17 GPB radio stations across Georgia. For more Medical Minute episodes, visit the GPB Augusta SoundCloud page.
