Common Sense
30 April 2018 | by christophercodygraceSee all my reviews

This documentary gives good information about how our brains should be running on fat, not carbohydrates. I've seen first hand how the ketogenic way of eating is beneficial and natural for humans. The documentary highlights the fraud of Ancel Keys work in convincing us to rid our diets of fat but it doesn't dive into modern FDA conspiracies. I highly recommend it.
