    Dr. Aseem Malhotra takes up the right things, and puts them in the right context. No more no less.

    What a fantastic speaker!

    Telling it like it is Dr Aseem Malhotra... Bravo!

    Of course I'd expect no less after having been introduced by Gandalf himself... the great Sir Ian McKellen!

    It is fun and encouraging to see all of these new doctors (Drs. Malhotra, Hallberg, Fung, etc.) on YouTube talk about LCHF and evidence based medicine.

    Thanks to DD we can easily find them.

    Dr Malhotra is going to change the way people eat. He's a great speaker - heard him at the LCHF conference in Cape Town.

    What do you think will happen when our US government is now fully in charge of our health care? The very same people in the FDA. The ones who are ignorant or worse, hiding, the benefits of cholesterol? Let us be clear, it is the government putting its claws into people's lives (e.g.McGovern committee) that will be our downfall.

    Yes, but it could take years to find the information. Our most trusted physicians don't have it or don't want to promote our good health. It is almost frightening. It took me years to find out what would reduce my blood sugar so that I don't have to see my ignorant physician. It takes up a lot of my day to get all this information. Now I am dealing with another physician who is bent out of shape because my LDL is too high, according to her. She does not look at almost doubling of my HDL, the drastic reduction in triglycerides, the minute number of my CRP, my reduction of HbAIc by one point, and my loss of 30lbs. What do I have to do to get them off my back? Not go to the doctor, that is what. I am taking care of myself, but I have a PhD in Science. I am interested in my health. What about the millions of diabetics and pre-diabetics who have no clue and do what their doctor says to do? An endocrinologist who says HbA1c of 6.7 is great!

    Kathy has it right.

    I'm happy for Brits to do whatever they think appropriate at a political level regarding their health system. It's none of my business. But I'm gobsmacked that so many people are willing to blame "corporations" for the corruption at the heart of healthcare (at least in the US) when our federal government so obviously guided and co-opted the industry.

    The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulates, well, food and drugs; The Department of Agriculture administers the annual farm bills which produce the subsidizes for grain and sugar products and sets the guidelines for school lunch programs. I could go on and on.

    When Dr. Malhotra points his fingers at "corporations" I cannot help but wonder how these entities obtained such influence over the behavior of public policy. I'm sorry but he's engaging in a bit of self-excusing scapegoating. When he identifies corporations as the evil bad guys he provides a simple solution that gratifies the ears of those he's speaking to but actual misdirects. Milton Friedman once said that a person's motives can sometimes be understood once we know who signs their paycheck. Much like Robert Lustig, this doctor is happy to point out how "others" are responsible why minimizing the role the institution he's employed by played.

    Corporations eager for profit are partially responsible, but, please, lets not excuse the politicians, scientists, and physicians their shoddy part.
