The Morgan Treatment
Weightlifter David Morgan , Commonwealth Champion and record holder, was as keen as anyone for his brother Tony to try to follow in his footsteps; not just for the fame and glory, but because he had a hunch it might help cure a problem.
Tony suffered from epilepsy.
Weightlifting has changed Tony's life. His athletic career took off and he became the youngest British champion ever. And at the same time the number of epileptic fits decreased steadily. Tony has now not had any since 1985.
Q.E.D. sought specialist help to try to discover whether weightlifting could really be responsible for keeping his epilepsy under control. Series editor DAVID FILKIN Producer CHRIS TAU
