BBC Documentary – Monitor Me

The BBC has worked with Dr. Kevin Fong to put together a documentary on the mHealth monitoring trend and its impact on our lives. As he says at the beginning of the documentary, “I want to find out whether simply monitoring ourselves everyday and gathering new information about our bodies could be the key to living a longer, healthier life.”

I haven’t yet had an hour to watch the documentary, but I’ve added it to my YouTube watch later since it looks quite interesting. I’ve embedded the documentary below. I’d love to hear your thoughts on it.
