I love to dig deep and learn. For those of you with the time and inclination to follow me, here are a few fascinating posts I’ve discovered this week. Each one challenges the status quo in some way, and offers up an alternative point of view. Much food for thought.
Excellent presentation by Dr. David Diamond, a neuroscience professor at the University of South Florida. Dr. Diamond faced taking statin drugs for his high cholesterol. Instead, he immersed himself in research. Here are his conclusions about statins, the low fat/high carb vs. high fat/low carb controversy, and the state of the research–all of which fly in the face of “conventional wisdom”.
Detailed blog post by Richard David Feinman, about the need to include research about low carb/high fat diets in the discussion about childhood obesity, and the necessity for integrity in research. Richard David Feinman is Professor of Cell Biology (Biochemistry) at the State University of New York (SUNY) Downstate Medical Center in Brooklyn, New York. His current interest is nutrition and metabolism, and he is founder and former Co-Editor-In-Chief of the journal Nutrition & Metabolism.
Three part series on the often overlooked role of insulin in human metabolic disease, written by Amy Berger, MS, nutritional therapy practitioner.
