Studying human nutrition is a challenge. Research is rife with confounders and objectively is often lacking due to the influence that money has on research results. This includes most, if not nearly all of the central tenets of current nutritional advice and dietary guidelines such as the health benefits of whole grains for example. Bart Kay, the “Nutrition Science Watchdog” is a former Senior Lecturer in clinical physiology and research methods share his views and doesn’t hold back as he deconstructs this for us. You might also be wondering why a former academic would follow and promote a carnivore diet; he has some very provoactive ideas.
