William R. Davis is a Milwaukee-based American cardiologist and author of health books, most notably "Wheat Belly". This book became a New York Times bestseller within a month of publication in 2011. Davis says that all modern wheat, which he refers to as "Frankenwheat", is as toxic and as addictive as many drugs and makes people want to eat more food, especially junk foods. In an appearance on the The Doctor OZ TV Show he said, "The wheat of today is nothing like the wheat of 1960, 1950—that is, the wheat that our moms or grandmothers had—so it has been changed. This new crop has implications for human health that have never been anticipated. So this is appropriate for nobody, no human, nobody in this audience, should be eating this modern creation of genetics research. Dr Davis goes further in recommending the elimination (or at least reducing) the starches & sugars in our diets.

Dr. Eric C. Westman

His 3 part YouTube CBC Documentary "My Big Fat Diet" chronicles the First Nations people of Alert Bay, B.C. as they take up a 1 year challenge to correct their diet back to their ancestral roots. That diet consisted of high fat, moderate protein and low glycemic carbohydrates. Check out Dr Wortman's personal diet story too.

Dr Thomas Seyfried
Dr Thomas Seyfried is a researcher and professor based at Boston College in Massachusetts, USA. His work focuses on the latest science on the metabolic pathways that work to feed cancer growth and strategies to break the cycle using multiple approaches to minimize damage to the patient while maximizing cellular respiration away from fermentation (what happens when cells turn cancerous) and back to proper health with ketogenic diet, intermittent fasting and other regimens. His work carries on the biochemistry work of Dr Otto Heinrich Warburg who discovered the fact that cancer cells revert to low energy fermentation to produce energy, even when there is sufficient oxygen available to provide more efficient energy at the cellular level.

His recent pivot away from advise on "carb loading" to "fuelling with fat" for long distance athletes has garnered attention around the world. I recommend watching Tim's video clip "Prof Tim Noakes Talks About Discovering The Forgotten Diet" (just over 1/2 way down the page at his realmealrevolution website). Also worth reading is Tim's interview with BizNews in early 2015.

Feb 12, 2017 - One of the early pioneers of LCHF diets (in the 1990's), Ron Rosedale was years ahead of the modern understanding of the health benefits of a "HIGH FAT DIET". Dr Rosedales understanding of the evolution for the rules of energy intake as it applies to life is a very worthwhile view.

Denis Minger wrote the book "Death By Food Pyramid", that contains so many highlights, so much good information, and gets so many things right, it is hard to review it without wanting to reproduce it. From the skewed science and agenda-driven government agencies to the confused and confusing experts and their contradictory and confounded studies and suggestions, page after page exposes the unfolding history of diet in the second half of the twentieth century in all its tragic madness and folly. Good interview with Denise at "Smash The Fat UK". More about Denise at her blog Raw Food SOS.
