Heartbreaking words from Dr. Michael Mosley on his untimely death before his tragic death at the age of 67

Dr. Michael Mosley, in one of his last interviews before his tragic death, talked about his fear of an “early death” just like his father. The body of a beloved television doctor, known for his work on numerous BBC science programs and films, was found over the weekend.

He was found in a rocky area near Agia Marina beach on the Greek island of Symi after an extensive search after he was reported missing. Before his death, he revealed his motivation to stay healthy, which was largely influenced by the death of his father at the age of 74.




Mosley revealed that his father “didn’t see his grandchildren growing up,” a path he didn’t want to follow. The father of four also revealed that his father developed diabetes in his 50s, which he himself was diagnosed with later in life.

“My dad, when he retired, basically sat on the sofa and watched sports, which was incredibly bad for him,” Dr Mosley told the Telegraph.

He then shared that his father died of “unrelated heart failure several years after surgery” to remove his prostate after a blood test showed an elevated PSA level. After being diagnosed with type 2 diabetes in 2012, Dr. Mosley made significant changes to his diet.

Since news of his death broke, tributes have been pouring in for the respected TV doctor. Dr Sarah Jarvis, who has worked with Mosley on The One Show since its original launch in 2007, paid tribute to his influential career. “Michael was absolutely charming,” she said on The One Show, the Mirror reports.

“He was funny, he was smart, but what really turned out was that he had the ability to communicate and wanted to convey important messages. This man touched so many lives. He took a really complex science and then turned it into something that appealed to everyone.
