    A very good blog regarding LCHF (Low Carb, High Fat) lifestyle
    LCHF is a very large trend in Sweden today (for 4-5 years)

    http://www.dietdoctor.com/lchf

    A good videopresentation:
    Thanks, Valle. Here are some notes. I’ve added another video from the series and links. Dr. Mary Vernon mentions Dr. Stephen Phinney in her presentation.

    She explained it in such simple language that I decided to purchased her book. To my surprise I got it for a penny plus shipping: “Atkins Diabetes Revolution,” by Dr. Mary Vernon, MD
    • Metabolic heath is the key. Learn how to control insulin. A side benefit is that weigh automatically improves.
    • The job of insulin is to stop fat burning and enhance fat storage. The primary secretagogue (a substance that promotes secretion) of insulin is dietary carbohydrate.
    • Carbohydrates (sugar and starch) make you hungry, so then you eat more. The industry understands this concept.
    • Every person has a carbohydrate tolerance, i.e. one size does not fit all.
    • If your body can tolerate carbs some sources are: eat real food, the least processed food, and vegetables are a good source.
    • Some vegetables have more carbs than others. Basically, if the plant stores the vegetable underground, it’s trying to keep the sugar away from the animals. These are tubers, which have a higher concentration of sugar, such as carrots, onions, potatoes.
    • It helps to put fat with higher carb vegetables to slow down the absorption.
    • The glycemic index of fat is zero. Therefore, fat does not raise your blood sugar.

    Deleting a promising cancer treatment

    Jul1, 2014 by theodorewesson

    by Jon Rappoport
    www.nomorefakenews.com

    The following information comes from Daniel Haley’s brilliant book, Politics in Healing: The Suppression and Manipulation of American Medicine.

    Haley recounts how a 1991 clinical trial of the innovative and “alternative” cancer medicine, hydrazine sulfate (HS), was rigged.

    Rigged to fail.

    A spectacularly promising medicine, HS had shown good results in trials at Harbor/UCLA hospital and in Russia. The National Cancer Institute (NCI) felt obligated to test the drug. But there was a catch.

    The drug’s discoverer, Dr. Joseph Gold, had found that HS could provoke very dangerous effects if patients were taking other drugs, especially tranquilizers. Several warnings were given to NCI before it began its test. The warnings were explicit. Patients could die if they were taking tranquilizers.

    It turned out that none of the NCI patients were warned about this. It turned out that 94% of those patients were in fact on tranquilizers.

    Barry Tice, an investigator for the US General Accounting Office (GAO), looked into the NCI trial of hydrazine sulfate after it was over. He called Dr. Gold and told him he had found a “smoking gun.” There was an internal NCI memo which showed that NCI was well aware of the problems involved in the drug combinations.

    But the GAO did not back up its own investigator. The final GAO report on the NCI clinical trials of hydrazine sulfate simply accused NCI of sloppy bookkeeping.

    In the June 1995 issue of the Journal of Clinical Oncology, a letter from the NCI was published. The letter stated that NCI had omitted mentioning, in its own published account of its cancer study, that 94% of the patients had been on tranquilizers. But, because this letter did NOT mention how dangerous that situation was, it looked like NCI was simply admitting to a technical and unimportant mistake. A clerical error.

    So what did happen to the patients in the NCI hydrazine sulfate study?

    The results have been suppressed. But NCI concluded that hydrazine sulfate was ineffective.

    The drug, hydrazine sulfate, a competitor for chemotherapy dollars, was eliminated. Hydrazine sulfate is a cheap, widely available, unpatentable substance. No profit there.

    Was this story splashed across the front pages of major newspapers in America? Did the “great men” of television, those holy anchors, insist on covering it with the emphasis it deserved? Of course not.

    The story was originally unearthed and published in Penthouse, by reporter Jeff Kamen, who should have won a Pulitzer for it, but won nothing.

    (Note: THERE ARE OTHER SUBSTANCES AND FOODS WHICH ARE INCOMPATIBLE WITH HYDRAZINE SULFATE AND MAY CAUSE GREAT HARM AND DEATH.)

    There is more to this incredible story. Penthouse publisher Bob Guccione’s wife, Kathy Keeton, who was the founder of Longevity, a magazine that was part of the Guccione empire, was diagnosed with “galloping breast cancer” in 1995. She was given 6 weeks to live.

    She refused chemotherapy and became a VERY high-profile case of a person taking hydrazine sulfate instead.

    She also chose radiation to reduce one of her many tumors-a growth around her bile duct. Dr. Gold said the dose of radiation should be small, because hydrazine sulfate would enhance the effect of the radiation. But the radiologist gave her the full dose instead, burned her liver and caused later scarring.

    Overall, Keeton recovered. In fact, a year after her predicted death date, her cancer was in full remission. The hydrazine sulfate was a remarkable success.

    Guccione ran ads in Penthouse, asking for families of the dead victims in the NCI experiment to come forward and join a class-action suit against NCI.

    Guccione estimated there had been 600 victims in the NCI clinical test.

    In October 1997, Kathy Keeton went into a major and well-respected NY hospital for surgery. From all accounts, this operation had nothing to do with cancer. Complications occurred. She died.

    Most of America assumed she had succumbed to cancer. Further “proof” that hydrazine sulfate did not work.

    Predictably, the FDA got into the act. On April 23, 1998, that federal agency raided a distributor of hydrazine sulfate, Great Lakes Metabolics, in Rochester, Minnesota. In 2000, the FDA shut down the company that supplied hydrazine sulfate to Great Lakes, and Great Lakes went out of business.

    In 1996, when hydrazine sulfate (HS) was still very much in the public spotlight, Dr. Gold stated he received 20 phone calls in one day from doctors at Sloan Kettering, the world’s number one center for toxic chemotherapy research and treatment. These doctors wanted to obtain HS on the sly for their patients. Gold stated that roughly 2/3 of the patients were from the doctors’ families. And six of these doctors had refused to give HS to other patients at Sloan Kettering. The phrase, scum of the Earth, comes to mind.

    Author Haley offers a dozen patient testimonials re HS. They are anecdotes, to be sure, but they are remarkable.

    Example: “Oncologist report in today. No cancer anywhere, after two and a half months on HS and vitamins/minerals and supplements. They have no idea where cancer went.”

    Example: “Seven weeks on hydrazine sulfate. Brain and lung lesions disappeared.”

    Example: “I purchased some HS for my sister a few weeks ago. Too early to tell, but she went from near death at the hospital on chemo to a campground some place, with a fishing pole.”

    HS studies at Harbor/UCLA and in Russia did not cure everyone, not by a long shot. There are questions about those protocols too, because ordinary foods like raisins are incompatible with HS-and who knows what the patients were fed.

    No well-designed studies have ever been done using HS on patients in early stages of cancer, where the results might be even better.

    More notes on HS (hydrazine sulfate)…

    One session of conventional chemo costs enough to pay for 10 years of treatment with HS.

    In 1973, a doctor with a terminal Hodgkins patient approached Dr. Gold for help. Gold recommended a dosage level. In a few weeks, the patient was up and around, not dead. By October of 1973, 1000 patients in the US were on HS.

    Dean Burke, head of cell chemistry at NCI, said in 1974 that HS was “the most remarkable anticancer agent I have come across in my 45 years experience in cancer…this material is so cheap because it is made by the trainload for industrial purposes.”

    In September 1973, Sloan Kettering (SK), the most prestigious cancer center in the world, started an HS study on terminal patients. The lead physician, Dr. Manuel Ochoa, had agreed to give each patient 60 mg a day for 3 days and then 60 mg 3 times a day after that-but Dr. Gold learned Ochoa was changing the protocol drastically-he was giving 1 mg the first day, then 2 mg the next day, and so on, building up to a top of 30 mg–except in some cases he actually gave patients 120-190 mg a day-brutal overdoses.

    In 1975 SK announced HS was worthless.

    Dr. Gold then did a study for Calbiochem, a drug company. 70% of 84 patients gained weight and had less pain. HS was, in fact, designed to alleviate wasting away in the first place. 17% of the patients showed tumor regression or a stabilization of their condition for one year.

    In 1975, Russian researchers published two positive study findings on HS.

    In 1976, the American Cancer Society (ACS) put HS on its dreaded blacklist of “unapproved” cancer treatments. ACS neglected to mention it owned 50% of a competing and highly toxic cancer drug, 5FU.

    By 1978, the FDA was cracking down on HS. 5000 patients in the US were on the medicine. The FDA falsely stated that HS caused bone marrow toxicity. In fact, conventional chemo — approved by the FDA — destroys bone marrow.

    The Diet War: Medical doctors punished & silenced for giving "unapproved" high fat dietary advice

    John P. Thomas Health Impact News
    Wed, 11 Jan 2017 15:48 UTC


    Dr. Gary Fettke, MD (left) and Professor Tim Noakes, MD (right).

    Dr. Gary Fettke, MD, of Australia and Professor Tim Noakes, MD, of South Africa are both being attacked for saving lives by promoting the low carbohydrate high fat diet.

    In the case of orthopedic surgeon Dr. Fettke, his offence against the Australian medical establishment was to teach his patients how to use the low carb high fat (LCHF) diet to reverse their type 2 diabetes and avoid the amputation of their feet and legs. He and his wife Belinda Fettke established two clinics to help people adopt a low carb high fat eating lifestyle. The sanctions placed on him prevent him from recommending or speaking about the LCHF diet to anyone, anywhere, and at any time for the rest of his life. [1]

    Dr. Fettke specifically showed how consumption of sugar and polyunsaturated oils destroys health. He recommended the LCHF diet to address the root cause of modern diseases. The list of 146 harmful effects of sugar that Belinda Fettke has posted on the No Fructose website is a must read for anyone who is concerned about their health. [2]

    In the case of Professor Emeritus Dr. Noakes, his offence against the South African medical establishment was to show that a low carb high fat diet could reverse numerous diseases. His LCHF book The Real Meal Revolution, is the all-time top selling non-fiction book in South Africa with more than 200,000 copies sold in the last two years. Affiliated with the University of Cape Town, Professor Emeritus Dr. Noakes has distinguished himself as one of the world's most famous sports scientists. His work has evoked considerable backlash from those who seek to enforce compliance with high carb low fat dietary dogma.

    Dr. Noakes is refusing to yield to persecution by the trivial charge that was brought against him, and is using his trial to bring the science of the LCHF diet into public view in South Africa and around the world. [3, 4]

    Together, Drs. Noakes and Fettke used decades of scientific research to show the link between the government recommended high carb low fat diet and arterial disease, diabetes, obesity, heart disease, cancer, and dementia.

    Conventional Medicine, Big Pharma, and Big Food are Kicking Back
    These groups are waging war against doctors and the hundreds of other healthcare providers and scientists around the world who have assembled strong evidence showing that the standard high carb low fat diet is one of the greatest health risks of our time.

    The high carb low fat diet is the center pin of contemporary medical care, drug research/sales, and processed food marketing. The business model of these groups is based on having a steady stream of sick patients and sugar addicted customers who consume the government recommended high carb low fat diet.

    The Diet War
    The groups that have been promoting the high carb low fat diet for the past 40 years are fervently resisting any effort that would cause people to turn away from eating foods containing sugar, highly processed grain, and polyunsaturated seed oil. They resist, because such a change would destroy their financial monopoly.

    Whenever healthcare professionals question the validity of the high carb low fat eating plan, special interest groups start snarling like a junkyard guard dog. Medical trade associations, the Big Pharma cartel, and processed food producers continue to insist that high fat low carb diets such as the ketogenic diet will kill people, because humans must have a steady external supply of glucose to survive. This is a lie, because the human body can produce the tiny amount of glucose it needs without eating carbohydrate foods.

    It is now clear from the work of Dr. Fettke, Dr. Noakes and many others that people can thrive on a LCHF diet that feeds their bodies with ketones rather than excess glucose. It is not the LCHF diet that should be feared and vilified, rather, it is the high carb low fat diet that is making people sick and killing people by the millions around the world every year.

    The Battle to Destroy the Careers of LCHF Advocates
    The groups that have been promoting the high carb low fat dietary guidelines have shifted their tactics. Formerly, they resisted by publishing fraudulent industry-funded research[5] and labeled their opponents as foolish and uninformed. They are now attacking the people who are proving that the LCHF diet can reverse the diseases caused by the high fat low carb diet. Their goal is to silence and destroy the careers of anyone who dares to oppose them, and to intimidate others from following in their path.

    The Beginning Stage of Dr. Fettke's Gag Order
    I will let Belinda Fettke, the wife of Dr. Fettke, summarize the situation as it began in 2014. This statement appears on the No Fructose website. She stated in part:
    My husband, Dr. Gary Fettke No Fructose, has been silenced and so, from today, this page [website] will become Belinda Fettke No Fructose.

    There has been an AHPRA investigation [Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency] into Gary's qualifications to give nutritional advice and speak on the science of what we eat and its central role in our health. This investigation has been going on for over 2 years and a 'caution' has been proposed. Until the case is finalized he will have to abide by the law to maintain his professional registration, and to come back another day.

    The Medical Board of Tasmania, under the umbrella of the Australian Health Practitioners Regulatory Authority, have advised him; 'In particular, that he does not provide specific advice or recommendations on the subject of nutrition and how it relates to the management of diabetes or the treatment and/or prevention of cancer.'

    Gary is not allowed to comment on the central role of nutrition in preventative health, nor in the management of chronic illness on any social media platform.

    Gary has been silenced and cannot discuss nutrition with his patients in any clinical setting, regardless of any undue stress on joints before replacement, inflammation, or even diabetes complications requiring amputation.

    Gary is not allowed to speak at any public or professional meetings that involve the discussion of nutrition.

    This scenario has been similar to the case of Professor Tim Noakes in South Africa. Tim and Gary have been communicating regularly. The difference between the cases is that Gary has been judged behind closed doors and Tim has been in courtrooms. Gary's investigation was the result of an anonymous notification and throughout the process he remains unaware of the peers that are judging him. It seems a strange system, where you are guilty until proven innocent, but he hopes to have the opportunity to make representation at some time before the final judgement.

    I have been on this journey with Gary and have my own opinion on matters related to health. My qualification to comment, I have none. My previous work as a Registered Nurse is unlikely to give me any current expertise, but, like so many people living the LCHF life, I have seen the benefits in myself and in those around me who have decided to Choose Health.[6]
    Dr. Fettke - Silenced for Life in 2016
    Belinda Fettke gives us the following update. She provided these comments on her website:
    As of the 1st November 2016 Gary has been officially 'Silenced' from talking about nutrition on any platform. Silenced from speaking with his patients or the public about nutrition, and the role he believes that Low Carbohydrate Healthy Fat Living can play in the management of diabetes and the adjunctive role in the reduction of complications and/or cancer prevention for the remainder of his medical career. [7]
    The Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency [AHPRA] issued this statement to Dr. Fettke by e-mail. The e-mail stated in part:
    There is nothing associated with your medical training or education that makes you an expert or authority in the field of nutrition, diabetes or cancer. Even if, in the future, your views on the benefits of the LCHF lifestyle become the accepted best medical practice this does not change the fundamental fact that you are not suitably trained or educated as a medical practitioner to be providing advice or recommendations on this topic as a medical practitioner. [8]
    Belinda Fettke provided additional information about the official ruling. She explained why this happened:
    Why? Because nutrition has been deemed to be 'outside the scope of practice' of an Orthopedic Surgeon, even though 2/3rds of Gary's patients have weight related joint issues and/or diabetes. AHPRA did not recognize that spending 1000s of hours reading textbooks, journal articles, working with scientists and collaborating with the full spectrum of health professionals (including fully qualified dietitians at Nutrition for Life) can be considered as 'research' or 'professional development.'

    This 'Caution' that AHPRA has handed down to Gary suggests that he is also restricted from participating in any 'nutrition' research projects to improve the health outcomes of his patients. Not only that, but it would suggest that he is unable to do any further study to become 'qualified' in the field of Nutrition while he remains a doctor under the AHPRA umbrella!

    There is no right of appeal. There is no time frame for the decision. It is indefinite. There is no review process. It is a closed door. Formal advice has described the process as a 'star chamber,' gross miscarriage of natural justice and a complete failure of fair process.

    This is Australia in 2016, not Nazi Germany where Gary's grandparents were persecuted. There should be a right of opinion and open discussion rather than 'anonymous' reporting of doctors for advice which is fast becoming mainstream.

    AHPRA have advised that the caution will not be recorded on the public national register but that they will make all employers aware of the caution. That leads to bias and potential discrimination forever. We have heard many stories of health professionals having their careers stifled because of these cautions.[9]
    You can use this link to read the full statement about Dr. Fettke's silencing, and the future of the Nutrition for Life clinics that Dr. and Mrs. Fettke founded to help people adopt and maintain the high fat low carb lifestyle.

    Belinda Fettke adds this final note. She stated:
    So, if you are interested in helping me continue to question the science, promote the role that Low Carb Healthy Fat principles play in both the management and the prevention of disease, and would like to help me be to become louder than ever before, please join me as the voice of No Fructose. [10]

    The Trial of Dr. Noakes

    Charges were filed against Dr. Noakes, because of a Tweet!

    In 2014, a nursing mother contacted Dr. Noakes on Twitter. This was her Tweet:
    "@ProfTimNoakes @SalCreed is LCHF eating ok for breastfeeding mums? Worried about all the dairy + cauliflower = wind for babies?? [sic]" [11]
    Dr. Noakes responded with a general Tweet that addressed all women who were wondering about weaning their babies onto LCHF foods. These are the famous words that got Dr. Noakes into trouble:
    Baby doesn't eat the dairy and cauliflower. Just very healthy high-fat breast milk. Key is to ween [sic] baby onto LCHF [12]
    Dr. Noakes clearly understood that his Tweet was general in nature, because the question he was asked referred to all nursing mothers. Thus, he was not responding in the context of a doctor patient relationship, because he was addressing all women who were considering how to wean their babies. [13]

    Based on his tweet, Dr. Noakes has been charged with professional misconduct that could result in the loss of his medical license. He was given the option of voluntarily deregistering as a physician in South Africa or facing a trial for misconduct. Dr. Noakes chose the trial. He actually hasn't treated patients in more than 15 years. He is using the trial as an opportunity to present the scientific truth about the low carb high fat diet to the world.

    Dr. Noakes is a medical doctor and one of few scientists in the world with an A1 rating given by the National Research Foundation for his expertise in both nutrition and sports science. [14]

    The trial conducted by the Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA) has unfolded in a series of phases over the last two years. The most recent segment took place in October of 2016 when Dr. Noakes testified for 5 and a half days before the HPCSA. He presented 30 hours of testimony complete with 900 slides to explain the science behind the LCHF diet, which also included information specific for infant feeding. [15]

    In a bizarre press release sent during the October trial, the HPCSA announced that Dr. Noakes had been found guilty. Three hours later they apologized and retracted the earlier press release. [16]

    There will be further interactions between Dr. Noakes and the HPCSA during the first few months of 2017 with a final decision scheduled for April 21, 2017. [17]

    Dr. Noakes designed the 5 and a half days of testimony to be a training course in LCHF science and its application to medical treatment for conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, and obesity. The testimony of Dr. Noakes was recorded and excerpts are now available on YouTube. These edited clips constitute a powerful presentation on this topic. You can watch most of the set of videos by using this link. Please search for the later segments.

    Prof. Tim Noakes talks about the details of high fat low carb research on this YouTube playlist (Excerpts from the trial testimony of Dr. Noakes)

    Dr. Noakes was a Former High Carb Advocate

    Formerly, Dr. Noakes was an internationally acclaimed proponent of the high carb diet for athletes. He was a marathon and super marathon runner. When he was confronted by his own doctor about his type 2 diabetes he realized that something was seriously wrong. He watched his father die of type 2 diabetes and knew that if he followed his doctor's treatment advice he would end up just like his father — living without legs and a functional brain.

    He began to research the situation with his diabetes and discovered that the culprit was the low fat high carb diet he had been promoting to runners and other athletes around the world. [18]

    Dr. Noakes thoroughly researched the high fat low carb diet and used it to recover from the dismal death sentence of type 2 diabetes that his doctor had given him. Dr. Noakes then publically recanted his earlier work on carbohydrates published in his book Lore of Running, known as the distance runner's bible. [19]

    Noakes Foundation for LCHF Diet Research
    Dr. Noakes and other advocates for the LCHF lifestyle have established a foundation to conduct research on the use of the high fat low carb diet to treat diabetes, obesity, and related conditions. The foundation has received donations and grants which are allowing them to do studies to conclusively verify that the LCHF diet is safe and beneficial for reversing diabetes and for achieving sustainable weight reduction.

    (Scientific papers and testimonies about the LCHF diet (also called the Banting diet) are available on the Noakes foundation website.)

    (This video contains testimonies from people who are recovering from diabetes, hypertension, and obesity after a lifetime of eating the low fat high carb diet. They explain what happened to them when they change to the LCHF diet to save their lives.)

    You also might want to read these books about the high fat low carb diet from Dr. Noakes:
    The Real Meal Revolution: The Radical, Sustainable Approach to Healthy Eating (Age of Legends), Sally-Ann Creed, Tim Noakes, Jonno Proudfoot, May 17, 2016.

    (Comment: I have reviewed the book. It contains good information about low carb high fat living. For seriously ill people such as type 2 diabetics, some may need greater carb restriction. For example Dr. Noakes has found that the treatment of his own diabetes required zero carbs from sugar, and in total no more than 25 grams of carbs per day. This allowed him to break his former sugar addiction and to manage his diabetes most effectively. [20])

    Super Food for Superchildren: Delicious, low-sugar recipes for healthy, happy children, from toddlers to teens, Tim Noakes, Jonno Proudfoot, Bridget Surtees; September 2016.

    (Comment: I have reviewed the book. It appears to be a cookbook to help parents and their children make the transition from a modern junk food diet to a reduced carb real food diet. The recipes would be a significant improvement for children who live on microwave pizza, fries, take-out burgers, and soft drinks. As far as I can tell it is not intended to help reverse existing childhood illnesses such as diabetes or autism.)
    Conclusion: Doctors Pay High Price for Following the Truth and Patients Suffer from "Approved" Nutrition Lies
    The lies that have been promoted by professional healthcare trade associations, Big Pharma, sugar producers, and the manufacturers of highly processed food consisting mostly of sugar, other refined carbohydrates and industrial oils are so pervasive that most people have been completely brainwashed. Fortunately there are doctors and scientists all around the world who are challenging the lies and bringing nutritional truth into the light of day. Dr. Fettke and Dr. Noakes are two who have gained prominence for speaking the truth, and who are paying a high personal price for speaking out.

    Sadly, Dr. Fettke will likely remain silent for some time to come. I am thankful that his wife will be able to continue speaking out on the benefits of the high fat low carb diet.

    The saga of Dr. Noakes is still unfolding. His trial is serving to bring even more publicity to the fact that people around the world have been sold a set of lies in the form of dietary guidelines that will make them obese and give them diabetes. These guidelines are producing healthcare expenditures that are going to bankrupt every developed country on Earth, and which will cause early death for billions of people unless there is a major change in eating patterns. It is not just the money that will be wasted, but it is the lives that will be destroyed by disabling chronic illness, prolonged death in nursing homes, and the complete exhaustion of all personal assets.

    The healthcare system in the United States is like a giant vacuum cleaner sucking up more than 17% of our gross national product [21] and producing some of the sickest people in the economically developed world.

    What would happen to the healthcare system in America if the 29 million diabetics [22] could reverse their disease with a strict LCHF diet and discontinue most, if not all, of their drugs? What would happen to the profitability of hospitals and the greater healthcare system if these diabetics could avoid kidney failure, heart disease, blindness, strokes, nerve damage, and surgeries for limb amputation and remain employed? What would happen to nursing homes if diabetics never developed late stage symptoms of disease and never needed nursing home care, because they completely reversed their disease? What would happen if the 86 million prediabetics [23] decided to adopt the low carb high fat diet and never became diabetic? What would happen to the manufacturers of sugar rich high carb processed food products if the 163 million diabetics, prediabetics, and undiagnosed diabetics [24, 25] didn't buy their junk food anymore?

    The answer to these questions might be financial collapse for all these business sectors. A large part of our economy depends on keeping a high percentage of people sick and addicted. This is why the trade associations and industry groups who manage the healthcare system, drug manufacturing system, and food production system are running scared and are setting out to destroy those who are revealing the sinister truth about the standard high carb low fat diet that continues to be promoted to developed countries around the world. These groups are not working to improve our health and provide us with low cost high quality food as they constantly claim. Rather, their plans are about maximizing market share and profits! Their bottom line requires massive amounts of sick people to sustain their control over the economy.
    "If the public were to follow guidelines to restrict sugar to 5 or 10 percent of daily calories, this would mean that profits for junk food companies would fall by half." [26]
    If diabetics treated their diabetes with the low carb high fat diet, then billions of dollars would be saved — perhaps as much as $245 billion per year. According to the American Diabetes Association the $245 billion dollars can be broken down into direct medical costs of $176 billion, and $69 billion in reduced productivity. [27]

    The costs associated with the exploding diabetes epidemic in the US rose 41% in just 5 years between 2007 and 2012. [28] This is a clear sign of a truly out of control epidemic.

    There is no indication that would lead us to believe that conventional medicine or Big Pharma has a solution for diabetes. At best, they try to manage the symptoms until the metabolic disease kills their patients. They offer no meaningful hope for reversal - they only manage the process of physical and mental decay, while watching patients slowly decline into a lingering death.

    In fact, the drugs that are prescribed don't even slow down the decline, because they were designed for people who are addicted to the high carb low fat diet. If the high carb low fat diet is causing diabetes and destroying health, which is clearly evident, then why should we expect that recommending this diet to diabetics will heal their disease? Does it make sense to use the high carb low fat diet to treat a disease that was caused by that diet?

    The standard high carb low fat diet is also responsible for the obesity epidemic. This worldwide epidemic has associated costs of 1.4 trillion dollars per year in the US alone. [29] This epidemic can also be treated with the same LCHF diet that is being used to reverse diabetes.

    If we want to understand how to address the epidemic of diabetes, obesity, and heart disease, then we have to do everything we can to understand why it exists. Those who do this exploration will naturally turn away from conventional treatments for these conditions and will make fundamental changes in their diet and lifestyle. Fortunately there is now an abundance of scientific research, websites, and books that can help anyone who is willing to make fundamental changes.

    As Dr. Noakes personally showed, he didn't have to live and die as his father did. He was willing to break his sugar addiction and reverse his illness. Diabetics need not accept the normal progression of their illness. Obese people need not suffer hunger by using calorie restricted diets that slow their metabolism and eventually cause them to gain weight.

    The LCHF diet isn't really a diet - it is a lifestyle of eating. I have been using the LCHF diet together with intermittent fasting and feel stronger and healthier than I have felt in decades. I have a number of symptoms of diabetes. I am no longer clinically obese and my symptoms are diminishing. The key to making the transition to LCHF eating is willingness to break the sugar addiction and change my relationship with food. I no longer consider eating as entertainment. It is now about sustaining the health of my physical body. Eating is no longer about getting high on sugar, but is about feeling energetically balanced and rested.

    The key issues underlying the battle against the high carb low fat diet go far beyond the treatment of diabetes and obesity. They strike directly at the true cause of arterial disease, of which diabetes, obesity, and heart disease are some of the major symptoms. Arterial disease is caused by the high carb low fat diet and not by cholesterol. Arterial disease sets in motion a cascading set of factors that lead to diabetes, obesity, and heart disease.

    Dr. Noakes explained that conventional medicine and Big Pharma continue to ignore two key problems, which are decreased life expectancy and financial destruction of the healthcare system. This is how Dr. Noakes described his concerns:
    But in the interim I consider it appropriate to describe what I think are the two most important ideas that have crystallized in my mind as a result of the "trial." They help explain why I think as I do and why, in my opinion, this debate holds a key to the future of medicine, not just in South Africa but globally. I argue that the future of both medicine and of global health requires that we finally acknowledge the importance of some core issues.

    Indeed a publication out this past month establishes that the exponential increases in obesity and diabetes in the US are now causing life expectancy in that country - the wealthiest in the world - to begin to fall for the first time in recent history. Such, I argue, is a true measure of how gravely the dietary guidelines that are at the heart of the "trial" have failed all of us.

    The time to admit our error is now upon us.

    Our current low fat dietary advice does not prevent arterial disease (for example of the heart). Instead it is the direct cause of an epidemic of arterial disease that will consume most of our medical resources within the next 10-20 years. [30]

    Cellular nutrition is always an answer coupled with a positive loving approach in life towards self and others.
    We watched Dr. John Aspley on Open Minds on Gaia last night. It was so compelling and interesting. He wrote a book on Cancer and Rejuvenation among many books ( I highly recommend the one on Fukishima Radiation- you ain't heard nothing yet til you hear this). Dr. Aspley is an MD(E), Chiropractor, Naturopath, Acupuncturist and scores of credentials all over the place. The man needs to live 50 more years to do what he wants to do! I will see if I can grab any youtube on him.

    One comment on the Atkins Diet Revolution. We hear all the celebrities losing fantastic amounts of weight and controlling their sugar cravings. However, no one is addressing the big elephant in the room. A ketogenic diet produces ketones, more than we dare want, to burn fat. All this chemical reaction, plus the fact that protein in higher amounts burdens the kidney and the kidney is the second pump so if compromised and it will be, it affects heart. Those two polarities are a given. More important, kidney being compromised affects brain heavily. It really makes no sense to me biologically to use this technique for a weight loss regimen or to maintain weight while disrupting the acid/alkaline ph of the body. Too much of either puts the body in imbalance and the cells do not like that. I believe if disrupted long enough, cells will morph and cluster and create cancers. I hope we have moved on from the Atkins ideology into a more balanced good high fats for brain and increasing metabolism, and lower carbs that increase need for insulin. That we not judge the important nature of seeds, nuts and legumes and tag them high caloric. We simply need to change our minds.

    I personally know all this and have tried over my life to lose the pounds with extreme measures. I know the harm of that. If I stay on the healthy food regime without the sugars ( I use coconut palm sugar or raw honey) that damage, eat very little chicken and fish but concentrate on vegetables, nuts, seeds, legume, coconut oil, fruits ( read what Anthony William from Medical Medium book says about fruits that they are anti cancer, anti viral, anti fungal anti bacterial and how they actually heal) using foods to increase metabolism in addition to my "senior" walks in cold weather which helps, my body is happier.

    As we age, we need more pure supplements because the food quality sucks. Choose wisely. Example:Tumeric grated in boiling water then simmered and drink with raw honey for joint health. Organic vegies and fruits, raw nuts. Our ancestors have shown us the way if we mind those approaches.

    Glad to hear I'm not the only nut around. I did something quite similar at the front of my grocery. A few ladies and children were selling cookies to benefit The American Diabetes Association. While not exactly losing it, it did get kind of animated. "Do you grasp the extreme irony of this situation? You're selling the very items that contribute to the development of diabetes, in an attempt to help those already suffering from it". As you can imagine there were lots of confused looks from the overweight women drinking sodas and selling sugar. <Heavy sigh>

    One of my favorites, Dr. Mercola, is fully on board with the low carb, high fat diet. By his estimation our diets should be from 60-75% fat.

    Sadly, people are confused by fats. Most that we are exposed to are rancid, putrid vegetable oils or fake olive oils. Those, of course, are terribly bad for us. Fats must be in raw form, unheated or processed. Although it does seem to be ok if meat fats are heated somewhat, that they still maintain their healthful properties. At home if we do ever fry any foods it is with beef tallow or pork lard. My God, what a great flavor imparted.

    Mikhaila Peterson: Meat-only diet eased her autoimmune disease symptoms

    Gigen Mammoser Healthline
    Sun, 03 Jun 2018 00:00 UTC


    Mikhaila and Jordan Peterson © Twitter

    Mikhaila Peterson took the keto diet one extra step by eliminating veggies and eating only meat. She says it cured several illnesses. Experts aren't convinced.

    At 26 years old, Mikhaila Peterson says she's finally been able to cure herself of depression, rheumatoid arthritis, and a myriad of other chronic illnesses.

    Her solution: Eating meat. Lots of it.

    Both Peterson and her father, Jordan Peterson - a renowned Canadian clinical psychologist and intellectual - swear by a carnivorous diet for turning their health and their lives around.

    A self-described sick child, Peterson experienced juvenile rheumatoid arthritis at 7 years old. She was given immunosuppressive treatments, including injections of Enbrel and Methotrexate (typically used in cancer chemotherapy). Despite the treatments, the arthritis eventually required her to undergo hip and ankle replacement surgery at the age of 17.

    She was also diagnosed with severe depression and anxiety at age 12, for which she was prescribed a high dose of Cipralex, an SSRI antidepressant.

    After years of pharmaceutical treatment to manage her symptoms, Peterson eventually took a drastic step of her own. She eliminated the majority of foods from her diet, including all carbohydrates.

    In 2015, at the age of 23, Peterson began a diet known widely as the ketogenic diet - and it appeared to be working wonders.
    "That solved most of my problems instantly. It was like a month and my arthritis was gone and my skin had cleared up. But it was particularly good at controlling the depression. It lessened, but I still had severe anxiety, but my fatigue went away as well," she told Healthline.
    Cutting out the carbs
    The ketogenic diet is based on the simple premise that when carbohydrate intake is drastically lowered, or stopped entirely, the body must find a new primary source of energy.

    That source is fat.

    However, the ketogenic diet is about more than just cutting carbs. Fat must become the primary source of calories. To be done correctly, the ketogenic diet requires individuals to consume around 70 percent of their daily calories from fat. To put that in perspective, current U.S. diet recommendations say that individuals should only consume 25 to 30 percent of their daily calories from fat.

    According to Peterson, the benefits of the diet appeared to fade after she became pregnant. So after her pregnancy, she started on the next phase of dieting: becoming completely carnivorous.

    If the ketogenic diet is on the extreme side of low-carb dieting, then the carnivore diet is on the extreme side of the ketogenic diet.
    "So, it's basically the ketogenic diet without the vegetables," said Peterson. "I was eating meat and a lot of salad, so all I did was cut out the salad."
    More research needed
    Not surprisingly, experts have pushed back against the carnivore diet. They cite numerous potential problems, including scurvy, constipation, and inflammation of the colon.

    And despite the Peterson family's effusive anecdotal evidence of the diet's ability to cure depression and autoimmune disorders, there have yet to be rigorous scientific studies to prove such claims.

    Healthline contacted Jeff Volek, a professor at The Ohio State University and an expert on the ketogenic diet who has authored numerous peer-reviewed studies on the topic, to clarify where the science really stands.

    On depression and mental health, he says there may be some merit to a meat-oriented diet.
    "There is a growing body of work that links excessive sugar intake to abnormal brain chemistry that manifests in different ways such as depression. Thus, by virtue of cutting back on sugar and processed carbs, a ketogenic diet may improve mood state. The increase in circulating ketones may also directly benefit brain chemistry and function in ways that improve depression," said Volek.
    However, he notes that this has yet to be demonstrated in large, controlled studies. A 2017 review of the psychiatric effects of the ketogenic diet found that in several studies - on mice - the diet reduced both anxious and depressive behavior.

    Evidence of the ketogenic diet's anti-inflammatory properties has also been demonstrated in some prior animal studies.

    In October, researchers at the University of California San Francisco said they had identified the mechanism by which the diet suppresses inflammation - potentially leading to new therapies for brain trauma, stroke, and diabetes.

    However, clinical trials involving humans have yet to demonstrate this.
    "Ketogenic diets have repeatedly been shown to dampen inflammation. Multiple mechanisms have been identified to explain this effect including specific effects of ketones on certain inflammatory pathways. There is strong reason to believe a ketogenic diet may be help in certain autoimmune disease, but humans studies are lacking and most of the evidence is anecdotal and testimonials," said Volek.
    Leaving anecdotal evidence aside, the ketogenic diet is an established therapeutic intervention for some conditions. It's currently recognized as part of treatment for seizures in children with epilepsy.

    There's also strong evidence that it can be effective for weight loss and reversing insulin resistance - a driving factor in developing type 2 diabetes.
    "A large body of work now indicates that sustained ketosis over weeks, results in broad-spectrum health benefits such as decreased weight and body fat, improved blood pressure, lipid profiles, and more," said Volek.
    Serious concerns
    Still, the ketogenic diet - and even more so, the carnivore diet - remain polarizing in health circles. "Keto diets should only be used under clinical supervision and only for brief periods," Francine Blinten, RD, a certified clinical nutritionist and public health consultant in Connecticut, told Healthline. "It can do more harm than good. It can damage the heart, which is also a muscle," she explained.

    Other nutritionists worry that with the diet's growing popularity, it may simply become the next fad diet for those desperate to lose a couple of pounds.

    The ketogenic diet has also been described as antisocial because of the profound limitations it places on what one can eat, making it difficult to share meals or drink with friends.

    Because of the "antisocial" nature of the diet, some experts have called into question whether or not it's sustainable in the long run - leading to starting and stopping, so-called "yo-yo" dieting.

    But, for Peterson, and others like her, the benefits of the diet clearly outweigh the potential problems.
    "It's incredibly difficult socially. You can't go over to somebody's [house] for dinner," said Peterson. "[But] I think most people feel better enough that it's worth it."

    Hi,
    low carb/high fat is not about too much meat. it is about sufficient protein. thus kidneys do not get hurt. on the contrary. a friend of mine went back from kidney stage 3 to kidney stage 1 (which means her kidneys repaired!!! - her doctor thinks it‘s „vodoo“ ;-) - he has not seen that before).
    but!!! if the thyroid/adrenals aren’t working properly it can backfire. I learned it the hard way.
    if eating ketogenic does not give you a load of energy (and instead you get more and more tired), you have to eat more carbs, till your adrenals and thyroid are supportet enough/have healed.

    greetings

    Keto Kontroversy: Australian Medical Assn. Puts Pressure on Netflix to Remove 'The Magic Pill' Paleo-Keto Documentary

    Doug DiPasquale Sott.net
    Wed, 06 Jun 2018 23:33 UTC



    Oooh, controversy is afoot down under in Australia, where celebrity chef Pete Evans is taking criticism for a documentary he co-produced and narrates, called 'The Magic Pill', extolling the virtues of the paleo-ketogenic diet. Cuz the good lord knows nothing ignites the public more than a good old fashioned argument about food! As the great Spam debates at the turn of the century or the Pepsi challenge disceptation of the 1980s show, human beings love fighting over what everyone else should be eating. It seems we're simply not happy unless everyone is eating what we say is right for them to eat. Or maybe we're just happy fighting about it.

    The current controversy erupted when Australian Medical Association (AMA) president Dr. Tony Bartone publicly stated that Netflix Australia, which is currently streaming the documentary, should "do the responsible thing" by removing the film from its programming. From Buzzfeed:
    "People out there are vulnerable to the messaging," Bartone told The Sydney Morning Herald, explaining that decades of research currently existed to back up the healthy eating guidelines.

    "I respect Pete Evans' ability and expertise in the kitchen, but that's where it begins and ends."
    The film was released in 2017, and then president of the AMA Michael Gannon tweeted his nomination for the film to the Flakeys "annual awards for the Film/TV least likely to contribute to the #publichealth #prevention". He also compared it to 'Vaxxed' (which should be taken as a compliment by anyone with two firing neurons). Pete Evans has been engaged in a social media verbal war ever since, posting from his popular Instagram and Facebook accounts, accusing these doctors and journalists of having ulterior motives in trying to maintain the status quo in dietary advice in the public sphere (because crying conspiracy always goes over well with the public).

    Evans is also taking heat from the media, but they seem more content to launch ad hominem attacks rather than actually criticize the content of the documentary. Australian presenter Sarah Harris of The Sunday Project said, "Stop getting medical advice from celebrity chefs," ignoring the fact that the film features many experts in the field, including a virtual who's who of the keto-paleo pundit world; Nina Teicholz, Dr. William Davis, Dr. David Perlmutter, Loren Cordain, Lierre Keith, Joel Salatin and Nora Gedgaudas, to name a few.

    Harris' co-presenter, Tommy Little, added "What I love about Pete Evans' diet is he says it's for other species; this is what they do so we should do that, but I don't reckon other species are that into fake tan and teeth whitening. He's orange." Evans responded by posting an image to Instagram featuring his genuine tan lines (warning: link contains butt crack).

    The Daily Mail got in on the action, portraying Evans as cooky chef who says crazy things like Wi-Fi causes health problems, that vegan women should eat meat during pregnancy and that sunscreen is full of toxic chemicals. Yeah, what a nut-bar.

    While this contentious media back-and-forth name-calling is what passes for entertainment these days, it also provides a great opportunity to examine the total and complete hypocrisy surrounding dietary recommendations in the public sphere. All we need to do is look at the documentaries that promote veganism that have enjoyed large success on Netflix - same streaming service, same general subject matter (diet), same format... different response from the Health Authorities. 'Forks Over Knives', 'What the Health', 'Cowspiracy: The Sustainability Secret', 'Vegucated' (I've never even heard of this last one, but it apparently provides a nice little vegucation for its audience) - for too long have we had to tolerate the endless streams of kudos on our Facebook feeds from acquaintances extolling the amazing life-changing disinformation in these films. Netflix is likely responsible for the creation of a veritable army of future former vegans.

    Maybe I missed the outrage from the medical community when these vegan documentaries hit the screens. I also must have missed the press releases from governmental bodies warning of the dangers of veganism and how the advice in these films will do public harm. Oh wait - those things never happened. The American Medical Association (which, confusingly, also acronymizes to AMA) actually encourages plant-based meals be served in hospitals. The American Dietetic Association have been continually supportive of vegetarian and vegan diets since the 1980s (very progressive). The American Heart Association also endorses vegetarianism. Just ignore the fact that the president of the AHA just recently had a heart attack.

    So it seems the authorities are perfectly happy with documentaries that endorse their pet diets, but anything outside of their dogma must be silenced.They'll call the diet dangerous, without any evidence, and will decry the films for influencing the public, which it views as basically stupid. Bartone was typically patronizing in his whingeing about the 'dangers' of the film:
    Newly appointed AMA president Dr. Tony Bartone told Fairfax Media he was worried vulnerable members of society - for example, people living with cancer - would believe some of the claims contained in the documentary over the advice of health professionals.

    "All forms of media have to take a responsible attitude when trying to spread a message of wellness," he said. "Netflix should do the responsible thing. They shouldn't screen it. The risk of misinformation ... is too great.

    "It's a [part] Australian production and I don't want to rain on an Australian parade, but clearly there needs to be a recognition of the power and influence Netflix brings. People out there are vulnerable to the messaging."
    "'Please mister government health body president, don't let me be exposed to information that might run counter to your dogmatic dietary advice! I'm a vulnerable member of society and can't make decisions about my own health for myself, based on my own research and logical reasoning. Please don't let these dangerous ideas get into my brain - who knows what damage they will do!"

    Bartone also trots out the old line that there are "decades of evidence-based research to back up current healthy eating guidelines", which apparently makes questioning them verboten, even though they are clearly - to anyone with eyes - not working. He also says that "while eliminating one or more food groups can, for example, result in weight loss it can 'make certain other conditions worse'". Again, no evidence is given for this statement and it's general enough to slide under the radar of most readers, but shouldn't an actual criticism of the film, and indeed the diet, offer something better than it can make other conditions worse? Which conditions? Worse how? Show me the evidence!

    One of the reason these medical authorities have their panties in a twist is that the film claims the ketogenic diet can mitigate symptoms of disease and allow people to reduce or discontinue their medications; specifically type II diabetes, autism and cancer. Those last two are a big no-no, but especially cancer. No one is allowed to say that dietary interventions can help with the Big C! No one except for veganism-promoting-documentaries, of course. They can make whatever BS claims they want to without consequence as if they've got some sort of magic hall pass (apparently as long as you're encouraging others to ruin their genetic line, ensuring their offspring will be functionally retarded, whether it's pharmaceutical drugs or veganism, you can act with impunity).

    The ironic thing is that, predictably, the controversy has lead to the film becoming even more popular, with Netflix extending its contract for an additional year and releasing it across their platform to other countries in other languages. Thank you very much, reactionary health fascists! You're helping to spread the word!

    Hi everyone (including the AMA and mainstream media.). I am pleased to announce that after speaking with Netflix today, they have decided to release The Magic Pill globally across their platforms in different languages. They have also decided to also extend the contract for another year instead of the initial 12 months first offered, as it is performing extremely well in the USA, UK, Canada, Australia and NZ. Also you can now purchase THE MAGIC PILL on DVD and blu Ray from

    And Netflix is actually coming out looking pretty good in this (to me, at any rate) since they aren't budging on streaming the film despite the pressure. Sure, all they really care about is the fact that they're making serious bank from the controversy, but at least they haven't wimped out and hypocritically removed the film while featuring so many vegan propaganda pieces. I still haven't forgiven them for the whole Obama show thing, though.

    Admittedly, I haven't seen the movie, although it's at the top of my list. And before all the commenters on this piece go into a tizzy, accusing me of being biased and only writing about this movie in a favourable light because it conforms to my own preconceived ideas about diet (because doing research, self-experimentation and using my brain aren't enough to make my dietary choices anything but arbitrary, apparently), let me point out that the main thrust of the above piece is the insincerity behind the media and government health body's reception of the film.

    You can say the vegan diet will cure all disease, give you superpowers, save the planet and make herbivores and carnivores skip through the soy fields holding hands, but to actually show people essentially reversing disease with a ketogenic diet needs to be censored. The authorities have a monopoly on health advice. Dissenters are not allowed.

    Dr. Tim Noakes exonerated in low-carb, high-fat hearing

    Katharine Child Business Day
    Fri, 08 Jun 2018 16:10 UTC


    © Tim Noakes

    The Banting diet guru Prof Tim Noakes has won his case at the Health Profession's Council of SA (HPCSA)' four years after he tweeted a response about a mother weaning her baby onto a low-carb, high-fat (LCHF) diet.

    He told TimesLIVE:
    "The predominant feeling at the moment is one of intense relief. Relief that it is finally over and that the appeal judgment was again 100% in our favour, as was the original judgment. This chapter is finally closed. I just hope that all the effort put in by myself and my team will help move the dietary guidelines forward to the benefit of the health of all South Africans."
    In February 2014' the mother' Pippa Leenstra' tweeted: "@ProfTimNoakes @SalCreed is LCHF eating ok for breastfeeding mums? Worried about all the dairy + cauliflower = wind for babies??"

    The complaint against Noakes was laid with HPCSA by dietician Claire Strydom' who was then chairwoman of the Association of Dieticians of SA.

    Noakes won his case in April last year but the HPCSA appealed the ruling and a new appeal committee 'including a doctor and a lawyer' was established.

    The issues at both hearings examined whether Noakes was giving "unconventional advice" over social media and whether he was treating Leenstra's baby as a patient without conducting an examination. Doctors cannot treat patients over social media.

    The appeal found there was no doctor-patient relationship between Noakes and Leenstra' who had used Twitter to ask for general advice.

    In its appeal the HPCSA argued that the protection of the public from tweets was paramount. The panel found the matter of protecting the public was not argued in the first hearing or in the heads of arguments and said that for the HPCSA to bring it up later was a "fishing expedition".

    The appeal was dismissed late on Friday afternoon.

    The panel found that the first panel was correct to agree with Noakes's argument that:
    "Neither [Strydom] or I can be certain of what is the best diet on to which to wean a child. As a result' we are allowed to [come to] our own conclusions based on professional experience and training."
    What Noakes frequently said during the trial was that if he was banned for tweeting 'it would affect all health professionals giving general medical advice on social media' or discussing controversial medical issues.

    During the appeal hearing, Noakes's lawyers mentioned e-mails they had accessed through the Promotion of Access to Information request. The e-mails were between Strydom and a professor of dietetics at North-West University and discussed a plan to complain about Noakes - before the tweet in question was posted.

    Noakes's legal team argued that the two had planned to take him down and found a tweet to do so. He has said his legal costs would have run into millions had his two advocates' Mike van der Nest and Rocky Ramdass' not acted for free.

    There was no order about costs' so the HPCSA did not need not pay any of his legal fees.

    Anyone not seeing where that was going:

    Quote if he was banned for tweeting 'it would affect all health professionals giving general medical advice on social media' or discussing controversial medical issues.

    ... like anything not AMA, FDA, etc. approved would be banned and taken off the air thanks to Facebook, Google, Twitter, etc...

    The basic cornerstone: PROFITS! ... and the gunning down of competition as collateral damages...


    Illuminati Nutrition Guidelines Make Us Sick

    henrymakow.com July 11, 2018



    Nina Teicholz's 2014 book The Big Fat Surprise: Why Butter, Meat & Cheese Belong in a Healthy Diet
    is a bestseller that continues to get kudos for its meticulous research, engaging writing and iconoclastic takedown of the 60-year war against dietary fat.


    The low-fat high carb orthodoxy that has governed nutrition throughout our lives is another example of monied elites deceiving and exploiting society for profit.

    They create sickness that supports a two trillion dollar pharmaceutical and healthcare industry. At the same time, they suppress and intimidate truthseekers like Nina Teicholz, above, who blew the lid off the vegetable oil scam in 2014. More proof that Western society is a satanic cult that controls and exploits its members by making them sick.


    Nina Teicholz- Bulldozer for Truth
    by Anne Mullens
    (excerpt by henrymakow.com)

    A 2003 piece on trans fats for Gourmet was a blockbuster, gaining wide circulation and garnering her a six-figure advance for a book on trans fats.

    Looking back, Nina is very grateful that she spent the first three years of her research "entering in through the trans fat door, getting to know all about the vegetable oil industry." Industry executives were very open to her. "I had wide open access because at that point, I was just learning. I asked for people's time and they gave it. No battle lines had yet been drawn."

    This research gave her a unique understanding about the power of the vegetable oil industry and how it had manipulated nutrition science--in particular, the "diet-heart hypothesis," which holds that saturated fat causes heart disease. She even learned that Proctor & Gamble, the makers of Crisco Oil (a hardened oil with trans fats), helped raise millions of dollars which enabled the American Heart Association to go from a small volunteer organization to a national powerhouse.
    "I got to understand the magnitude of the vegetable oil industry and how important the demonization of saturated fat was to them. How much they had influenced the science, funded the science. How powerful they were," said Nina.
    Quote I would get off the phone and be shaking, like, I am investigating the underworld?
    She soon realized she was on to a much, much bigger story -- that everything we have been told about fat for more than 50 years is wrong. Some sources were too afraid to talk to her.
    "I would get off the phone and be shaking, like, I am investigating the underworld? As a journalist, when you realized that someone is afraid to talk to you, you know there is a big story there."
    As an accomplished journalist working on such an important topic, did she ever have a moment's doubt that the book would be a tour de force that would shake the very foundations of nutrition science?
    "Oh my goodness, it was incredibly stressful. As my conclusions became more solid, almost every night I would lie down on the floor of my husband's study and say 'I just can't do this! How can I be right and everyone else be wrong? It can't be possible.' And then I would spend hours and hours trying to disprove myself. Is my data solid? Is there any way this could be wrong?"
    A definite low in the writing process came in the first few years when her first publisher dropped the book because she hadn't turned it in on time. Nina had to not only pay back her advance but then had to soldier on, alone without support, for almost a year before Simon and Schuster purchased the book for a much smaller advance. To support her and her two children, she relied on her husband's income and used all the money from an inheritance from her grandmother, to enable her to continue writing a book that was taking much longer than she, or anyone, expected.
    "It was a difficult time. And the longer it took, the more everybody was embarrassed to ask me, 'Are you still writing your book?' and I would say 'Yes, I am still writing the book.' There is such a fear you will never finish."
    But with her dogged focus that bordered on obsession, a supportive family, an unflagging editor and a tenacious agent, after more than nine years, the book was finally done. "My editor, agent and I called ourselves the "bulldozers of truth" -- we felt we just had to get the truth out into the world."

    The result, as almost all the reviews note, is a gripping read about co-opted science, often funded by the vegetable oil industry, that led to the shunning of saturated fat for almost 50 years -- and very likely contributed to the obesity and diabetes epidemics.

    Her book and its resulting influence on the heated debate around nutrition has led her to be a target for critics, some who have attacked her personally with vicious name-calling and angry statements.
    "What Nina Teicholz has done and continues to do is very brave and very important. The resistance she has faced and the personal attacks have truly been remarkable," says Dr. Andreas Eenfeldt, founder of Diet Doctor.

    "For example, a high-profile MD affiliated with Yale called her "shockingly unprofessional", "an animal" and more in a Guardian article. But he failed to provide any examples of this unprofessional behavior, despite several requests from the journalist. I think many experts have been living comfortably in dogma for decades. When they get intellectually challenged by a woman, a journalist, and they fail to find any good arguments, some of them just lose it, and lash out at her. The truth is often inconvenient and uncomfortable."
    The personal attacks have been difficult, says Nina.
    "On the one hand, the attacks are painful and hurtful, but at the same time, you know that if they are attacking you personally it is because they cannot attack you substantively. One has to stay above the fray and not stoop down to their level of name-calling. Their level is so low, it's embarrassing - and it certainly doesn't help the scientific discussion."
    Since 2004, she herself has embraced the low carb, high-fat diet. Now she relishes juicy steaks, plenty of cheese, and lots of butter -- and feels at her healthiest, and effortlessly at the thinnest, of her entire life.
    "Everyone who switches to this diet just marvels at how delicious all this food is that has previously been forbidden. It is an incredible liberation to not be counting calories and to live in a way where food is no longer your enemy. I really would have appreciated knowing all of this when I was a young woman when I always wanted to be thin and 10 pounds lighter."
    Is another book underway? Not at the moment. Currently, almost 100% of her time is occupied working with leading the Nutrition Coalition, the non-profit organization she founded to ensure the U.S. nutrition policy, especially its influential dietary guidelines, is evidence-based. Working closely with Dr. Sarah Hallberg, who directs the Nutrition Coalition's Scientific Council, her goal is to get the U.S. Dietary Guidelines reformed by their next iteration, in 2020.
    "The Dietary Guideline imposes profound rigidities on both the medical and food systems in the U.S. We have to remove that rigidity to give doctors the freedom to prescribe different diets, including -- for instance, a low carb, high-fat diet, for patients with obesity, Type 2 diabetes, or other nutrition-related diseases. There is no single, more powerful lever on the way America eats than the U.S. dietary guidelines. And that is why they need to change."
    Is she optimistic? Certainly more so now, with the community of worldwide individuals who are being brought together online.
    "It is such a wonderful community of people. Everyone shares a common goal. All are so grateful for their newly-found health and wellbeing. There is a sense of purpose and a collectivity that is really a beautiful thing. I think we are lucky to be where we are at this moment in time."

    Low carb, high fat (healthy fats, mostly saturated or mono-unsaturated) ... that's working well for me too.

    My breakfast just now (I "work" programmer hours - to bed before sunrise, and up at noon or a little after) consisted of a glass of my special water, then a half hour later, a chunk of Raw Milk Cheddar Cheese, that is made using milk from small Amish farms in Ohio. Happy grass, happy cows, happy hacker. I go through perhaps 5 or 10 pounds of that cheese per month; it's good.

    I can't claim to be my thinnest ... I was a skinnier long distance runner, a half century ago. Nor can I claim to the smartest I've ever been ... I was an ace student, back in my day. But I'm fifty pounds lighter, and my mind is clearer and quicker than it had been for many years, when I was on a more conventional, higher carb, diet.

    Now I'm having a concoction of slowly rendered bacon, butter (from grass fed cows) and avocado, with hot and salty spices, along with some more of that good cheese.

    Quote Posted by Hervé (here)
    Mikhaila Peterson took the keto diet one extra step by eliminating veggies and eating only meat. She says it cured several illnesses. Experts aren't convinced.
    ...
    The ketogenic diet is based on the simple premise that when carbohydrate intake is drastically lowered, or stopped entirely, the body must find a new primary source of energy.

    That source is fat.

    However, the ketogenic diet is about more than just cutting carbs. Fat must become the primary source of calories. To be done correctly, the ketogenic diet requires individuals to consume around 70 percent of their daily calories from fat. To put that in perspective, current U.S. diet recommendations say that individuals should only consume 25 to 30 percent of their daily calories from fat.

    According to Peterson, the benefits of the diet appeared to fade after she became pregnant. So after her pregnancy, she started on the next phase of dieting: becoming completely carnivorous.

    If the ketogenic diet is on the extreme side of low-carb dieting, then the carnivore diet is on the extreme side of the ketogenic diet.
    "So, it's basically the ketogenic diet without the vegetables," said Peterson. "I was eating meat and a lot of salad, so all I did was cut out the salad."

    The above discussed articles show a common, and unfortunate (in my view) mistaken view of what we usually mean by a ketogenic diet.

    In particular, Mikhaila Peterson is misrepresenting what a ketogenic diet is.

    A ketogenic diet is a high "healthy" fat, low to very low carb, moderate protein diet. Healthy fats are the saturated and mono-unsaturated fats, from plants, eggs, dairy and/or meats (individual preference), that do not oxidize easily and that are the primary source of energy in a ketogenic diet. "Good" ketogenic diets include few or even better no grains and refined sugars, and include minimal essential fatty acids, the Omega 3 and 6 oils that are easily oxidized (damaged), but essential in small quantities. This and other healthy diets avoid industrially processed, rancid, or hydrogenated vegetable, cold fish, and seed oils.

    Peterson is partially correct in representing a ketogenic diet as having as few carbs as practical, but incorrect in representing a ketogenic diet as being high protein. There are nine essential amino acids (proteins) in human diets, but proteins are hard for the body to digest, so best not consumed in quantities far in excess of what the body needs. One could, as seen in this case, end up with liver or other digestive failures from a chronic excess of dietary protein.

    In short, no Mikhaila Peterson, a carnivore diet is not a ketogenic diet minus the vegetables. Ketogenic diets are high in fat; carnivore diets high in protein. Big difference.

    The defining characteristic of a ketogenic diet is one that raises one's blood ketone levels, which are an indicator that one is burning fats, rather than glucose, for most of the body's energy needs, and that correspondingly lowers one's insulin and blood sugar levels. One best does this on a high fat diet, with just the minimum of proteins (moderate amounts of the nine essential amino acids) and minimum grains/carbs/sugars. The essential minimum of grains/carbs/sugars is zero, The body will easily make what glucose it needs (not much) from fat, if it doesn't consume any in the diet. Protein that is consumed in excess of what the body needs for the essential amino acids end up (at considerable metabolic expense) being converted into more sugars, so an excess of protein is counter productive.

    In case the tone of my words above is not clear to the reader, I continue to heartily endorse a ketogenic diet, for myself certainly, and for the consideration by others as well.

    So far as I can see, there are absolutely no apologies called for.

    I was calling out Mikhaila Peterson's description of ketogenic diets, not calling out anything you said.

    So you should apologize for apologizing </sarcasm>.



    ... and yes, I'm sure vegan keto is possible, though I personally lean more toward dairy keto (lots of butter and cheese). I and my northern European ancestors going back for millenia have been major consumers of dairy, unlike most other peoples on the planet.
