Here is Peter Attia, M.D. and Robert H. Lustig, M.D., M.S.L at the 19th Annual Asian Investment Conference in 2016. It’s irritating that the speaker’s presentation slides are not embedded in this video, but I found it very interesting to listen to. Lustig stomps on myths that continue to be factored into dietary guidelines.

I love to watch good health documentaries. This one will not surprise you, if you are knowledgeable about how the metabolic syndrome epidemic has happened. Watch it anyway. It goes way beyond the sad recent history and ongoing situation with dietary guidelines and includes a lot of useful health information. Promising scientific theories are explained with explanations of how they are being suppressed. The focus is on dementia, though it is relevant to all major chronic diseases. The producer, Obhi Chatterjee, points out basic reasons the dementia epidemic may have coincided with:
- unscientific dietary advise against fat and cholesterol
- routine drug prescriptions such as statins
- high-carb processed foods and gluten
- chemical toxins
If you want a thorough review of this, you can find one in Blog Post 152 on Verner Wheelock’s blog. Just watch it though – it is well worth 81 minutes!

This describes n=1 experimentation of the ketogenic diet done with authoritative science. There is a question and answer session at the end where the possibilities of curing some cancers is discussed.
Prof. Tim Noakes explains how insulin resistance is not the root cause of metabolic syndrome, but it is a critical factor in the amount of carbohydrates a person can tolerate.
