presents itself as fact when its dangerous and ridiculous garbage
i don't review many movies, but i had to comment on this piece of trash.
when all of the films 'experts' had no listed credentials, i started to smell a rat. then when they opened their mouths to speak, i would've laughed if the nonsense they spouted weren't so dangerous
dr eades went to medical school alright, but never did a residency. he's board certified in NOTHING! why would he be one of the experts? like the film says, 'follow the money' - he writes...wait for it...diet books.
where were the cardiologists to talk about heart attacks and blood vessels? the neurologists to talk about the pathophysiology of stroke (i am a neurologist)? where were the research scientists?
according to this idiot, he is set up by his genes to be overweight, yet he eats nothing but crap for a month and he sheds a dozen pounds and all of his lipids have dropped. what was he eating before this film? salads? it was the lettuce he used to eat that made him fat. he should keep going with this diet, he'll be the most fit person ever.
i tell you what i see in my ER. young fat people and old slender people. it doesn't take a research grant to add that up. find me an obese 80 year old. 90 year old. good luck hunting.
the doctors involved in your day to day health are the ultimate skeptics. we review and critique every piece of medical literature. before we accept data, we LOOK for ways to invalidate it because that is our job. we fine tune research. there is no conspiracy.
isn't it odd that the average life expectancy continues to CLIMB when it's based upon a bunch of lies us doctors are telling you to pad our pockets? hmm.
(oh yeah, genius, cave men were healthy because they died in their 20s)
this guy is an idiot and the 'scientists' in this film should be ashamed.
