The Dr. O Show
I was recently interviewed on the Dr. O show. No, not that Dr. O. This Dr. O actually knows what he’s talking about when it comes to diet and health.
Some of you may recognize Dr. S. Andrei Ostric as a frequent contributor in the Fat Head Facebook group. He’s a passionate and intelligent guy who recently decided to start producing his own Dr. O podcast show. I hope he keeps at it and ends up on some national radio network. We need people like him to offset the damage done by media doctors who push the same old anti-fat nonsense.

Dr. Lustig featured in new seven-part series
Dr. Robert Lustig seems to be everywhere these days, including a recent appearance on 60 Minutes. That appearance inspired at least one diabetic I know to seriously reconsider his diet. (Fat Head apparently didn’t do the trick … oh well.)
The UCTV video channel is now featuring Dr. Lustig in a seven-part series on obesity. Here’s the first episode:
Saturated Fat Praised on TV
In my recent speech, I explained why people are turning to the internet for alternative dietary advice that actually works. It’s nice to see that stories about the benefits of a high-fat diet are also finding their way into more mainstream media, like this one from an Australian news channel featuring nutrition author Christine Cronau.
I couldn’t embed the video, but you can watch it here.
Naturally, we had to also see a dietitian warning the audience that tens of thousands of studies have linked saturated fat to heart disease and other diseases.
Tens of thousands? Really? I don’t know exactly how many observational studies anyone could find on that topic, but I doubt there are thousands. If we did go through all the studies, we’d find that the supposed correlation is all over the place. What matters are the clinical studies where researchers attempted to lower rates of heart disease with low-fat diets. Those studies have been done, and they were all major flops.
I hope the people watching that news story see the kind of shape Christine Cronau is in and conclude that the dietitian is clueless … which she is.
