Broadcaster:  NHK

New medical research has highlighted a threat previously overlooked by society: a 'glucose spike'.


This happens when blood sugar levels soar for a short time after eating sugary foods. The spike is hard to detect in regular health check-ups. If you don't take precautions, you could be at a higher risk of diabetes, hardening of the arteries, strokes, and even heart attacks. It could also spark cellular cancer or dementia. How should we approach this cause of so many maladies? How can we prevent this in our everyday lives?


This program tracks the hidden story behind the medical effort to tackle the deadly glucose spike, giving informative and practical advice about how we can prevent this from impacting our health.
