Dr. Mercola Interviews Dr. Robert Lustig
In this excellent video discussion, Dr. Lustig delivers a wealth of knowledge regarding the root causes of our major chronic diseases. That’s right; the data is available that identifies root causes of what is gobbling a third of our economy. Insulin resistance drives all of the chronic metabolic diseases and the solution is simple: Eat real food, not the processed stuff with fat removed and sugar added.
It was interesting to hear Dr. Lustig’s views on the ketogenic diet and intermittent fasting. Also, Dr. Lustig considers trans fats as potentially more damaging than sugar. Watch out for heat-processed vegetable oils and consider that quantities of trans fats less than 0.5 grams do not have to be identified on food labels. So avoid foods with nutritional labels.
This informative video is well worth the 53 minutes.
