  • Do vegetarians live longer?

    On 2nd February 2017, Melody Ding, a senior researcher from the University of Sydney published an article in The Conversation titled “Do vegetarians live longer? Probably, but not because they’re vegetarian”. Her preferences were revealed early in the article when she writes, “vegetarianism and its more austere cousin, veganism, are becoming increasingly popular”.

    A person calling a vegan diet austere does not know how to cook.

    There is overwhelming evidence that vegans (and particularly whole-food, plant-based vegans) live longer and healthier lives.

  • Eating Red Meat is Not Natural

    Galactose-alpha-1,3-galactose is popularly known as alpha-gal. It is a carbohydrate found in the meat of mammals – exceptions being primates (which includes humans) and other African and Asian apes.

    Since the early 2000s, severe allergic reaction has been observed several hours after the consumption of red meat. Several deaths have occurred.

  • Deception from The BMJ

    On 24th September 2015, BMJ issued a press release titled BMJ investigation questions expert advice underpinning new US dietary guidelines. The press release stated:

    The expert report underpinning the latest dietary guidelines for Americans fails to reflect much relevant scientific literature in its reviews of crucial topics and therefore risks giving a misleading picture, an investigation by The BMJ has found.

    The BMJ Investigation was an article written by Nina Teicholz in response to the above report. It was not a BMJ investigation. Why is The BMJ press release stating that they, The BMJ, performed an investigation when it is clear that this is not the case.

    This article was fully funded with a grant from the Laura and John Arnold Foundation (www.arnoldfoundation.org).

    The Laura and John Arnold Foundation provided the seed funding for NuSI, the organisation founded by Gary Taubes and Peter Attia to promote low-carbohydrate nutritional science.
