This Week in Low Carb News: Nina Tiecholz on the Ketogenic Diet and Belinda Fettke on Conflicts of Interest

Every week I come across a bunch of articles I want to tweet about and comment on and every week I run out of time to do it.  This is my attempt to clear out the open tabs on my browser by putting them all in one place.  Enjoy!

This one might be a little longer than normal because I didn’t do one last week.  Just enjoying a few days off for Thanksgiving and being around family.  And Keto cheesecakes.

Ketogenic Diet Myths vs. Facts – It bears repeating.  If Nina Tiecholz writes something, I share it.  That woman is brilliant.  In this case, a great blogpost breaking down common myths about the Ketogenic diet and what the science says about them.

Mannose impairs tumour growth and enhances chemotherapy – Found this interesting in light of what we know from Dr Seyfried’s research.  We know cancer loves sugar so if we can use a sugar to defeat it, that would be a game-changer.  Apparently, the cancer cell tries to metabolize Mannose like glucose but can’t get energy from it.  Can’t wait to see how this is incorporated into cancer research moving forward.

Being Overweight or Obese and the Development of Asthma – This particular study really hit home for me because I was that overweight asthmatic kid for most of my childhood.  I will never forget the day I was cleaning off my desk after having been low carb for a few months and finding my old inhaler.  I used to always have to know exactly where it was in case I had trouble breathing but after keto, I totally forgot about it.  Just one of those great NSV’s that come with eating food that doesn’t cause inflammation.

The overfat pandemic in India – Was so happy to see this paper put the blame for the obesity epidemic in India squarely on sugar.  You would think that if the Vegan arguments are right, India would be the healthiest place on Earth but alas, they were sold a defective bill of dietary goods like the rest of us.  I was also surprised to see that Phil Maffetone co-authored this paper.  It reminded me to reach out and try to get him on the podcast!

Lifestyle Medicine … where did the meat go? – This is a must read article about the conflicts of interest in the dietary guidelines.  A masterful breakdown of the influence of Seventh Day Adventist money on our plant-based lifestyle guidelines.

The untold truth of Little Debbie – Speaking of Seventh Day Adventists, guess what company that pumps out tons of sugary treats is owned by and Seventh Day Adventists?  Why Little Debbie of course.  Wasn’t there another company responsible for some portion of the American Obesity problem owned by 7DA?  Oh yeah, it was…

Corn Flakes Were Part of an Anti-Masturbation Crusade – Good ole Kellogg’s and their anti-masturbation Corn Flakes.  How many Vegans do you think realize their diet was designed to make you less virile an sexually active.  To effectively castrate you?  Probably not too many.

Here’s The Economist extolling the virtues of Veganism.


Ever wonder why your teeth are crooked?  This might clear up the mystery.

Very nice breakdown of the Tim Noakes trial.
