RRED Welcomes Professor Naveed Sattar

RRED welcomes Professor Naveed Sattar who has agreed to join the RRED team as our medical adviser. As Professor of Metabolic Medicine at Glasgow University, Naveed specialises in understanding the links between diabetes, obesity and heart disease. He is a recognised international expert in his field with several national and international prizes for his research. He has published extensively on his subject and has contributed to several clinical guidelines relevant to diabetes and obesity.

Professor Sattar said ‘I am very pleased to be part of the RRED team and hope we will make progress in persuading shops to restrict sales of energy drinks to children. These drinks are entirely unsuitable and unnecessary in a child’s diet. Until we have legislation we have to rely on retailers taking a responsible attitude towards their young customers’.
