Repeat: The increasingly sedentary lifestyle of many in Western societies has been linked with various diseases that have been on the rise for decades. Jonathan speaks with Jozef Ukropec from the Biomedical Research Centre at the Slovak Academy of Sciences, who was also a finalist for the 2021 ESET Science Award, about these disturbing health trends and how the lack of physical movement in our lifestyle is contributing to them. – For the past 10 years or so we’ve been hearing a lot about the problem of ‘antibiotic resistance’ and the lack of new antibiotics in the development pipeline, a situation that could potentially leave us more vulnerable to infectious disease than we’ve been for decades. But there are people working on the problem, including Jonathan’s guest Pavol Jakubec of the Slovak University of Technology and the small team of scientists he’s part of.
