    New York Times reports no benefit to time restricted eating… but what did participants in the study eat?

    The New York Times reported on a study in the New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM) on time restricted eating, or as it is more commonly known these days, intermittent fasting. It’s important to note the study was also based on calorie restriction, which was left out of the headline, in addition to time restriction. […]

  • The saturated fat falacy

    Professor Timothy Noakes is writing a series of articles to try to put the nail in the coffin of the modern western diet and dispatch forever the shoddy work of Ancel Keys. This is why you should immediately distrust anyone that says, “The science is settled.” Science by it’s very nature is never settled. Those […]

  • Seed oils and their effect on your body

    This is something I only learned recently and the information isn’t getting any better for seed oils (vegetable oils). VEGETABLE oils are highly unstable. When they interact with oxygen, they release neurotoxic, DNA mutating chemicals which are known to cause cancer (at least). Recent improvements in measurement technology have now thrown a spotlight on the […]

  • A call to improve dietary research

    This article is a must read. It showcases the difference between pharmaceutical research and nutritional research and how much more difficult the latter is to the former. Much of dietary research is dependent on surveys because it is next to impossible to have people captive while conducting a study. As a result it is difficult […]
