David Diamond - An Update on Demonization and Deception in Research on Saturated Fat...

  • Published on Jun 16, 2017
  • This lecture is part of the IHMC Evening Lecture series.

    For the past 60 years there has been a concerted effort to demonize saturated fats, found in animal products and tropical oils, and cholesterol, in our food and blood. Despite the well-established health benefits of diets rich in cholesterol and saturated fat, flawed, deceptive and biased research has created the myth that a low fat, plant-based diet is ideal for good health. I will deliver an update on a talk I gave 2 years ago at the IHMC in Ocala, which will provide a historical perspective on how poorly conducted epidemiological research, U.S. government intervention and misinformation conveyed by contemporary lifestyle researchers have contributed to the current state of confusion on dietary influences on health. In addition, I will discuss how biased research has created the false appearance that high levels of serum cholesterol cause heart disease. I will describe how researchers have used deceptive statistics to give health care providers and the public the false impression that statins produce a dramatic reduction in the incidence of cardiovascular disease and mortality. I will point out that the miniscule benefits of statins are offset by their well-documented adverse effects, such as promoting the development of type 2 diabetes, cognitive impairments, cataracts, muscle pain and wasting, and increased incidence of cancer. This talk will serve as a wake-up call for the public to educate themselves as to how to optimize their diet and cardiovascular health.

    David. M. Diamond received his Ph.D. in Biology in 1985, with a specialization in Behavioral Neuroscience, from the Center for the Neurobiology of Learning and Memory at the University of California, Irvine. He is a professor in the Departments of Psychology and Molecular Pharmacology and Physiology at the University of South Florida, where he has directed his research program on post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Dr. Diamond has served on federal government study sections and committees evaluating research on the neurobiology of stress and memory, and has over 100 publications, reviews and book chapters on the brain and memory. He has served on the editorial boards of numerous medical journals and has received 30 years of federally funded support for his research. In the past decade, Dr. Diamond has expanded his research program to include cardiovascular disease and nutrition. His controversial research is an extension of an advanced seminar he directs at the University of South Florida entitled “Myths and Deception in Medical Research”, which emphasizes the critical evaluation of methods and conflicts of interest in health-related research. In recent years he added to his list of publications controversial papers on diet, cholesterol and statins, including one paper published in the peer-reviewed medical journal “Expert Review of Clinical Pharmacology”, which described the deceptive practices employed by researchers promoting statins for the treatment of cardiovascular disease. Dr. Diamond has been invited to present his myth-busting views on nutrition and cholesterol to lay people and physicians at nutrition, cardiology, obesity and diabetes conferences all over the world.

    Great presentation. I taught high school chemistry and physics, and a healthy amount of math included in my classes. I ALWAYS emphasized students look at the Y-scale when representing and /or analyzing data. One of my "wisdom sayings" in my room was: "It's easy to lie with math, but it's easier without it".

    Tremendous work, Dr! First saw you around five years ago and I quickly changed my diet. I eventually evolved to a combination Paleo/Mediterranean/Ketogenic diet and over that period lost over 60 lbs of fat, reduced my BMI from 33 to 23, eliminated my high blood pressure and all meds! My cholesterol remains at 260 but now I understand the function of cholesterol and how it works for my body. I now incorporate fasting one day per week around 36 hours and twice a year incorporate a 96 hour fast for the purpose of inducing Metabolic Autophagy for a host of medical benefits for the body. Thank you, Dr for your information as you were my original inspiration to where I am today...HEALTHY!

    Thank you! I took a baby aspirin for 1 month, it caused severe burning pain in my left thigh muscle. My Total cholesterol has been 250 +/-20 over the past 30 years. I've been pressured by my docs to take a statin and tried Lipitor 20 years ago, it caused me severe pain so I stopped taking it after 30 days! I'm on the Keto diet now, all my blood markers are now great except LDL (195) and I don't care about LDL. I've lost 20 lbs in 4 months on Keto. My CAC score was done last month, it's a 0 @ 59 years old. I'm confident that my risk of heart disease or stroke is low. Don't take statins!

      Same here. Similar background, similar reaction from my dad. Every time he sees me he tells me I'm going to die.

      But - he's on statins because of a heart attack 15 years ago, and I can't change his mind about cholesterol, even though I can visibly see his former good health slipping away from him.

      Even up to and after the heart attack he was otherwise physically healthy - he smoked a lot for many years which is what precipitated the heart attack.

      He quit smoking after, but he also quit eating fatty meats and butter. His doctor put him on statins and told him to quit bacon and butter and eat grains, chicken breast and margarine!

      Since I've been carnivore, my health is visibly returning, but my dad still won't shake his beliefs or stop the doctor prescribed drugs that are harming him.

      Oh yeah he's on meds for type 2 diabetes now too. Lots of people who take statins end up with type 2 because statins mess with how fat is absorbed.

      But sure dad, I'm the one who's going to die any day.

      It makes me so sad to see him lose his health, but I can't get him to listen to reason.

      My total cholesterol is only 162. I am 62yo and in good shape. Gym, swim, yoga. My 30yo doctor STILL wants to put me on statins because of that ridiculous CVD Risk Calculator shows a 10-year CVD risk of 8.3. I declined the statins.

      As result of the population's health deterioration, because of toxic, deficient, sedentary lifestyles inducing too much chemical, emotional and physical stress... cholesterol levels are going down.

      Those who are healthy - producing enough cholesterol to maintain good health - are seen as being ill, since not in line with markers of the rest of the diseased, fatigued herd.

    About 21 years ago I was put on 10 mg Lipitor because I could not lower my Cholesterol by my otherwise healthy diet. This small amount made my cholesterol tumble down so much that the doctor told me to cut it down to to 5 mg, but even at this low dose I got leg muscle weakness and a great decline in cognitive ability. I, at about 6 months on the drug, took myself off it having read Dr Duane Graveline's book "Lipitor Thief of Memory".
    At about that same time (6th month) I was diagnosed with Glaucoma (another known side effect of Statins) and 2 years ago with Type 2 Diabetes.
    I have shared a lot of what I have discovered with others but it's just like talking to Zombies. It seems most people are not really interested in taking control of their own health, particularly medical doctors and so the one I am required to see (as little as possible) is now trying to get me back onto the Statins and Diabetes drugs which I have consistently refused to do

      @Piper Mccoy Hi Piper, you should also know that of all the trials performed to "prove a relationship between cholesterol and heart disease" there has never been one showing any such relationship in women! But rather what has been shown in the Framingham study was that the higher your cholesterol the less likely you are to have a heart attack and the longer you will live. Throw your statins in the trash

    I was told my cholesterol was high and Lipitor 10 mg was prescribed. After a week of 10 mg of Lipitor I was taking twelve Tylenol a day for muscle pain and later the doctor said take half of the Lipitor. Well, I quit the Lipitor after three months of pain no matter how much I consumed of the statin. I now have diabetes and cough a lot. This one prescription ruined my life style.

    • Marica Maas
      Marica Maas 2 years ago

      @Clay Butler
      However, keep in mind that the body does not raise the BP without a reason; it is an adaptive response to chemical, emotional or physical stress; this in order to prolong life. Dr.John Bergman D.C. talks about this in his lectures.

      Cardiologist Stephen Sinatra for example notes in his lecture about how to lower BP naturally: 'Always tell the truth.' Telling the lie is what causes the problem; the rise in BP is an indication that something wrong happened.

      When considering the body's response of inducing fainting: Actually it is more likely to die of low BP?

    Is there a bibliography? I'd love to read through the reports Dr Diamond is presenting in summary.
    Also, given the disclaimer on the adverts shown to medical doctors (the this means... 2% vs...3%) would indicate that a large proporton of these doctors are innumerate as regards statistics. I'd suggest medical schools add satastical analysis (minimally, something like 'How to Lie With Statistics' )to their base curriculum. A prerequisite to 'evidence based medicine' is being able to understand the evidence.

    So I guess then, apart from taking large quantities of K2MK7 in your later years, is to ensure that your blood sugars (thus glycated LDL, Hb) are kept well under control. Else that glycated LDL will mow down the lining on your artery walls and leave you exposed to damage. Interestingly glycated LDL (oxidized) is NOT taken back up into the liver as normal LDL is. So lowering your cholesterol, and LDL is only dealing with the normal LDL, thus increasing the % concentration of glycated LDL in your blood. not good.

    • Marica Maas
      Marica Maas 2 years ago

      Yet to be covinced that cholesterol markers are causative of any negative outcomes. Theories around them keep changing.

      All these tests seem to be part of milking the cow for profit; they continue to drive fear and stress in the population and their physicians alike; while all the time driving the supposed optimum normal numbers down; this as the diseased state of the population is advancing towards that direction.

      It seems rather similar to the HIV retrovirus identified; accompanied by pronouncing a possible death sentence on those who test positive.

    This continual war between high carb/low carb camps must be wonderful to those who want to divert attention from the real issues. Haven't we learned from history that we are always manipulated into choosing one of two camps and don't they fully support both sides of a phoney debate. You can watch presentations from both sides and be convinced because neither side wants to address their own shortcomings. Yet when you look at some of the consistencies between both sides, you start to understand where our energy needs to be focused, and that is the unnatural chemical, biological and genetic interference in all food production as well as the corruption that leads to profit from suffering and death. And they are still getting away with it all whilst we argue low or high carbs/fat.

    • Marica Maas
      Marica Maas 2 years ago +2

      Yes, however at least one can think more clearly on a diet high in fat, and the body is able to respond better to stress.

      Also, being adapted to burning fat, makes fasting - the most potent form of healing - much easier.

      Consider the huge impact a high carb/low fat diet has on suppression of T levels /male leadership; at the same time inducing female dominace.

      It also leads to infertility - of both sexes; thus is part of the population control agenda.

      Yes, came to the conclusion that for maintaining health there is nothing more potent than fasting. According to the documentary SCIENCE OF FASTING, there are now fasting clinics in Germany.

      You need to find what works best for you. MD Nicholas Gonzales worked out more than 10 different diets with individualised supplementation - according to genetic make-up, and autonomous nervous system dominance.

      Keep in mind Weston Price's principles: Eat whole foods - locally produced; avoid refined processed foods with additives; do not go low fat; include some animal- and fermented foods.

      When it comes to plant foods: Keep in mind not all are friendly:

      Root vegetables have some starch, although as unprocessed food, are generally ok to eat in moderation if diabetic, (20 to 50g of carbs daily), and normally if not. Avoid cereal starches, they just turn straight to sugar, and avoid all sugar like the plague, it does nothing but damage.

    I was put on Lipitor and couldn't tolerate it, so my doctor put me on Crestor, which nearly killed me (my lower back muscles felt as if they were disintegrating). So now I don't take any statins, and I told my doctor that I've read that they're a sham. What perplexes me in this presentation, however, is how they obtain the 24% increase in incidence in diabetes for those on Crestor. The actual difference between placebo and medicated groups appears trivial.

  • Tom Groom

    Thanks for the good presentation. I just don't know who to believe anymore... I'm a med student and we have textbooks and all of our professors of cardiology telling us that cholesterol (or actually LDL-c) causes coronary artery disease (CAD) and that statins are a MUST (because even though they have side effects, they decrease mortality). On the other hand, you have everyone who has ever been on statins or who has ever read a strongly worded Facebook article about statins saying that they are the devil and that doctors just want to make money from the pharmaceutical companies. This is different to the ignorance spread about vaccines, however, because all good doctors will agree that vaccines are good, but now there are lots of doctors swearing on their lives that the American Heart Association is wrong and lying to the public about cholesterol and statins and that makes it difficult to decide who is right. Well I honestly just want to learn what will be best for my patients one day and it would be awfully nice if there could be some objective medical consensus as to what prevents CAD and myocardial infarcts. Thanks

      @Tom Groom Sorry to give you further bad news. There is a link between vaccines and autism in children. Look at the adjuvants in the vaccines that are used to mount an immune response from the body as the antigen is not enough. Also look at the preservatives. You will find that the adjuvants and the preservative are highly neurotoxic. If you see healthy children and then developing autism, give it a thought. Also do not discard what parents will tell you about it.
      Best of luck in the future.

  • The ex Vegetarian Blogger

    One of the mechanisms that causes atherosclerosis is haemodynamic stress on the arteries (veins don't get atherosclerosis). Basically the high pressure of the blood puts a mechanical strain on the arteries and if the arteries are not supple enough they can crack, and then the cholesterol rushes in to 'spackle' the crack. Guess what leads to stiff arteries?

    Hyperinsulinemia. Basically being insulin resistant and eating a high GI high carb diet causes atherosclerosis. Calcification makes the arteries stiffer and more prone to damage under pressure.

    Shouldn't the list of clotting factors mentioned here include HsCRP, homocysteine and Lipoprotein(a)? The high sensitivity C reactive protein is a marker for systemic inflammation, homocysteine is related (maybe not causative though?) to coagulation and a high level of Lipoprotein (little a) is associated with a higher risk of clotting. I understand that much of this can be reduced with simple supplements like Niacin (B3) and other B vitamins in addition to stress reduction, exercise and proper diet. It should be a crime that people are led to believe that these chemical medications will save them from a crappy lifestyle!

    I grew up in the Midwest being fed fat, dairy, bread, sugars, fat, dairy, bread, sugars, with sparing amount of vegetables (non-corn) and fruits. Always being an athlete, I had been very active up and including today. But as I aged I started to experience diabetes symptoms, coronary issues. I love sugar/bread, but after trying to blame protein, fat, lack of veggies... I finally after much self experimenting realized that it was all due to:
    Too much dairy
    Too much protein
    Not enough whole food, plant based eating
    BUT mostly due to sugars and refined flour products (homemade or not)
    Six months later, huge difference, BMI melting away, energy level like 30 years ago, weight management good, no indigestion, no sugar highs/lows, blood pressure drop from 135/90 to 115/70.

    I'm very confused. Vitamin K2 is in Natto and supports clean arteries. But, when you buy Natto supplements they have the vitamin K removed because it states it assists in clotting. Clotting is what we are trying to steer away (why we buy Natto) from unless we are bleeding. So, we want non-sticky blood as the doctor says.....but, we also want K2 (mk-4, mk-7). What part am I not understanding?

  • Akane Cortich

    With regard to K2MK7 the mechanism by which it is beneficial to arteries is not to do with calcium, but elastin. K2MK7 protects against the degradation of Elastin in your artery walls, keep them smooth, flexible and impervious to plaque. K2 will always calcify plaques, that IS its critical function in protecting the body. It isn't a risk its a benefit. To see some clear evidence of this go to Okinawa where Natto is a daily food source. Just 100 gram of Natto contains 750mcg of K2MK7 that is a very large amount. Okinawan's have a reputation for longevity. AS you age your body serum levels of K2 drop markedly, and also the recycling of K1 to K2 falls - thus your arteries begin to lose their flexibility, and stiffen. Increasing your risk of plaque and breaks/cracks = heart attack, stroke. So the reason that High fat Cheese helps longevity is the same things, but less so than Natto. Calcification of plaques is a Positive, not a negative - K2 is doing what is designed to do to protect the body.

Finally I refused to take anymore statins (recently prescribed Crestor by my cardiologist).

  • Marica Maas
    Marica Maas 2 years ago

    In principle cholesterol is life-sustaining, not only towards maintaining a healthy brain and nervous system, but for healing&repair of all our cells. It is also needed to produce Vit D; thus preserving our immunity. Therefore a cholesterol-lowering drug is prescribed as an immuno-suppressant before an organ transplant operation - as to limit the possibility of rejection.

    A high fat diet stimulates bile production; this is pivotal in emulsifying fats, towards assimilation of fat soluble vitamins; as well as for detoxification, the stimulation of peristalsis, and thus the prevention of constipation & auto-intoxification. Limited bile leads to the formation of gallstones; hence the rising problem of removing gallbladders - induced through low fat diets.

    Cardiologist Stephen Sinatra explains how exposure to EMF's disturbs the zeta potential of blood cells, which enable them to push each other away. ('Blood must flow like red wine, not ketchup.') Much of MD Dietrich Klinghardt's treatment for example revolves around lowering EMF exposure.

    What is most distubing, is how muscle pain - as result of statins - is brushed aside as if not important. The pain is an indication that nerve cells are dying. As the muscles are losing their nerve innervation, they waste away - including the heart and arteries - all muscles.

    As it turns out the French mis-reported heart disease and attributed it to alcoholism and they are in fact much worse than the previous reported. And the rates of cvd is rising due to the more western diet patterns.

    The French also tend to walk everywhere. Many people don’t even own cars or if they do they only use them to drive long distances, sit to the Gas cost being over $7 per gallon. Unlike Americans who don’t even walk to the mailbox or school.

    Cholesterol Guru, Chris Masterjohn, often talks about how part of the problem is that when LDL is in the blood for too long, the antioxidant protection surrounding it begins to break down causing oxidation of the underlying PUFA. This oxidation of the cholesterol causes it to bind in places where it shouldn't be and triggers a further inflammatory response.

He is an amazing educator, and addresses topics so well for quick answers. Then check the thinking by going to Dr Andreas Eenfeldt’s site www.dietdoctor.com/. There is a lot there to help. Also, be sure to take a bioavailable form of Magnesium like Mg acetyl taurate or malate. Take B12 methylcobalamin, and take NOT-fortified nutritional yeast (add a tablespoon to bone broth). Be sure to get some sun, take Vit K2. Look up Dr Ford Brewer about K2 clearing up arteries. Eat what feels like 2 enormous salads of dark leafy greens with balsamic vinegar and olive oil, and limit spinach because of high oxalates. Ditch all sugar, carbohydrates processed food and seed/vegetable oils. Eat grass fed beef or other red meat. Add a bit of liver. Add lemon juice to your water a couple of times a day, and maybe cut down to 2 meals when you are able and incorporate intermittent fasting. Also add in cruciferous vegetables and onion, garlic, and the occasional red capsicum for a vitamin c boost. Treat yourself with blueberries, the occasional orange or grapefruit, and once a fortnight have a small piece or two of sweet potato or beetroot. Have your evening cup of tea or dandelion with a teaspoon of MCT or coconut oil for brain health and better sleep. It sounds overwhelming but just make the changes one at a time. Best wishes..

      In the beginning of Dr. Diamond's talk he points out how he is drawing his conclusions on research previously done - including by many MD's. At the end he notes how he is standing on the shoulders of giants.

      It is unfortunate how physicians - who entered the field of medicine to help humanity - have been hijacked - left ignorant for example about good nutrition; which makes them pawns used by the medical industrial complex. Fortunately many of them are waking up to this fact, and together with naturopathic practitioners they are spearheading a movement in the opposite direction.

      Most valuable is that they were part of the system, and know how it operates. Consider for example the work of Zach Bush, Natasha C.McBride, Gary Fettke, Jason Fung, Nicholas Gonzales, Duane Graveline, Suzanne Humphries, Robert Lustig, Aseem Malhorta, Tim Noakes, Stephen Sinatra, etc. etc.

      Besides for standing up against the cholesterol/statin scam; today there are for example practitioners joining forces against the HIV/AIDS hoax. Also, an organisation PHYSICIANS FOR INFORMED CONSENT was recently established.

      In all professions those with big egos, and/or hungry for money can be found; such is life. The MD's I know, are over-extending themselves in order to help others, working hard under stressful conditions, while seldom spending time with their families.

      When it comes to the use of statins in order to prevent rejection of foreign organs: This would be foundational in making a case against statins?

      Similarly a body that shows - on surface - zero inflammation, is not necessarily healthy; it could well be a case of a suppressed immune system and mounting toxicity?

    • Marica Maas
      Marica Maas 2 years ago

      In support of what you pointed out, but for you agreeing with Dr. Diamond about obesity as it would relate to 'normal' weight.

      Not suggesting that extreme obesity is healthy, yet who knows today what is normal - as is pointed out in FATHEAD documentary; since the BMI is changed at a whim - similar to cholesterol and BP numbers?

      Whatever the case, there clearly is a sense of disgust around ANY fat. Could be - as Fathead suggests - driven by 'thin white women fat police'. It is even seen as undesirable on those who are older, and who could do well with at least some reserves in storage?

      This body fat aversion runs alongside the fixation on a super thin body image; as projected over decades via modelling through mass media. It seems somehow to relate to the ingestion of fat, the issues around supposed cholesterol pollution, and alas, also to the pending vegan solution envisioned - to be enforced on us globally?

      To what extent this is a grand illusion - driven by anxiety/fear; maybe a symptom of the unfortunate disease of the brain (wheat schitzophrenia/bread disease); or be it out of ignorance... This obsession is causing mental distress, diet disorders, relational- and marital problems, and is driving the population in the direction of choosing and enforcing a starvation diet?

      When keeping in mind how Robert Lustig points out that there are more normal weight individuals who are metabolically ill... It makes one wonder about what is happening here?

      Yes, indeed, the general accumulation of toxic load, as well as deficiencies in diet all comes into play. Believe disturbance of brain function and microbiome through EMF exposure also plays a huge role; even ultra-sound scanning - with increased temperature messing with enzyme activity - involved in cell division - is highly suspect.

      As research scientist Stephanie Senneff also points out: Low fat diet, low in sulphur-rich foods, with lowered cholesterol & therefore lack of Vit D and suppressed immunity; also lack of sun exposure, because of using sun screen lotion, etc. all plays a role. Currently she is concentrating on gut health, and how it is disrupted by toxic anti-biotic glyphosate in combination with gluten. The gut/brain axis comes into play: Leaky gut = leaky brain. This relates to the work of Neurologist Natasha C.McBride (GAPS diet), MD. Zach Bush (RESTORE), Neurobiologist Clemens (Measuring gut permeability and restoring through PKD diet), etc.

      The problematic contribution of vaccines to the general toxic load; and them leading to the increasing rate of autism and other psychological-, physiological-, and auto-immune disorders; is that they are inflicted - in increasing doses - on these very tiny young patients, whose immune systems and brains are not yet developed.

      It also depends on their sex and genetic disposition: Testostetone causes boys to be more vulnerable; Estrogen is protective. It is also genetically determined how well a person can get rid of toxins; and for example how much the child's genetic information was harmed by the parents' toxic deficient lifstyle, etc. - as you rightfully pointed out.

      Suzanne also explains how it is beneficial to contract infectious diseases as a child; in order to develop the natural immune response; how it is also protective against cancer later in life, and how natural immunity of parents are beneficial for their offspring.

      @Marica Maas , people keep blaming vaccines for autism. However, people aren't considering all the huge changes to our food that happened between 1965 and 1980.

      Grocery store food changed from being packaged in glass, tin cans not lined with plastic, and butcher paper to being packaged in plastic and styrofoam.

      Change from using animal manure to using industrialized manufactured fertilizer.

      Change from eating animal fats and animal proteins to eating human-invented seed-oils and more plants.

      Newly invented pesticides, herbicides, and fungicides.


      I was just watching Bart Kay Nutrition Science Watchdog and a guest presenting that oxalates are implicated in autism and a bunch of other health problems.

      Thank you for taking time to share all that information; grateful to be able to keep on learning from such comments.

      Have you done research about vaccinations; for example the history of their development? MD Suzanne Humphries co-authored a book DISSOLVING ILLUSIONS about this. She also has an excellent YT lecture - delivered in Sweden - on the use of Vit C.

      Also in favour of not being as negative towards the medical profession; this in spite of the level of ignorance about nutrition and the latest research about medications not working.

      MD's are working hard - under stressful conditions - spending little time with their families - doing their best with the tools in their toolbox. They do save lives and the improve the quality of life of many through emergency-, palliative care and operations.

      Unfortunate that their continued education; by which they earn points in order to remain registered to practice; is being sponsored by big pharma; who continues to train them towards prescibing their medications only. Other natural ways of treatment like good nutrition, detoxification - including fasting - are ignored. Until the 70's the use of coffee enemas was for example noted in the Merc Manual; today hardly any MD is aware of its benefits.

      When it comes to the standard of care, chemo and radiation treatments for cancer: these are carcinogenic; it may destroy the cancer and leave the patient in remission for a time, but then the cancer returns with vengeance. Natural remedies which cannot be patented - like DMSO (which can help with many conditions besides for cancer) are suppressed. Interesting how many patented chemo drugs are in fact manufactured from plant compounds.

      As Kimberley Cooper notes: Those who know better should take up the responsibility to reach out to ignorant MD's.

    It is an interesting lecture in so far as it shows that cholesterol is not the whole story to heart disease (rather convincingly). It's also troubling how scientists with an agenda can bend their results to go their way.

    But he makes a bunch of leaps regarding other questions which I cannot be satisfied with.

    1. Assuming cholesterol is not responsible for heart disease, that still does not vindicate saturated fat, which may operate through many other pathways. No word on that.
    2. The underlying message seems to be that food sources of saturated fat are healthy - that does not follow from the presentation at all.
    3. Blood clotting factors are involved in heart disease - what causes their increase?
    4. No details on what the 'high carb diet' he was referring to includes. Composition matters. You will find virtually nobody that would argue that a refined carbohydrate diet is healthful.

    That being said - keep it coming. These kinds of talk are constructive additions to the nutrition debate. I would like to see some plant-based advocates protecting their case as well (as far as I can tell, there were none who gave talks or were hosted on podcasts)

      @Yhonatan Shemesh the controlled trials have all exonerated saturated fat as a nutrient of concern.
      There was never ever a reason to believe saturated fat was detrimental in the first place

      @Thales Nemo I'm not sure providing evidence is going to matter be they the traditional Okinawans or Seventh Day Adventists because you have your LCHF talking points. And, that's fine. However, here's one for you though ... Christina Warinner, PhD, of the University of Oklamhoma gave this presentation at the 2016 International Conference on Nutrition in Medicine: ru-clip.com/video/FNIoKmMq6cs/video.html

    Americans are told not to eat fat but they do eat fat in the form of fast food and processed food and that is why they are fat. How much fat is in a Big Mac, with French fries or a Double Cheeseburger? I am sure low income people are fatter than anyone in America because all that is available for them to eat is fat laden fast food. Just because people are told what to do and what to eat does not mean that they do it.

      Elle-mental A Big Mac with fries contains 89 g carbs, 44 g fat, and 28.4 g protein, so no matter which way you look at it (be it by weight or calories), it is high in CARBS. And then you've got to keep in mind that hardly anyone consumes a Big Mac (or any other type of fast food for that matter) without some sort of soft drink to go with it which adds zero fat and zero protein but tons of sugar, i.e. carbs - and I'm not even going to get into the deserts. It's not the fat that makes people sick, fat, tired and depressed, it's the carbs. The insulin roller-coaster keeps people hungry all day long and so we are being told by Big Food that we need consume three meals plus three or more snacks to keep our blood glucose stable. The best way to keep your blood glucose stable on a low level, lose weight and get healthy is to reduce the carbs and the number of meals you consume, and it can be done without being hungry.

      The fat is hydrogenated veg. oil not butter, cocnutoil, avocados and olive oil. The hydr. veg.oils in combination with carbs are the killers.

      The point is typically when people are eating a high fat "traditional american diet", they are also eating high carbs. The carbs are the problem, not the fat.

    I wish that you Doctor had done the research on what fats are better than others. Dr. Berry on the key tone diet eating lard and bacon fats and no regard to Dr. Ornish's life style changes or the impurities in the animal fat which stores the toxins or so I understand vs Flax Seed oil ? If I eat lard I get chest pain. not with Flax seed oil.
