Caldwell B. Esselstyn Jr., MD and patients were interviewed by the BBC. He responds to the surprising, disappointing “Clean Eating-The Dirty Truth” program.
Dr. Giles Yeo interviewed me for the BBC. It is now abundantly clear that Yeo and the BBC intended to disparage the notion that food matters for our health.
Dr. Tom Campbell explores the most recent wave of popular nutrition information claiming a high-fat diet is the key to weight loss.
Most of you have heard about raspberry ketones right? Or you’ve been told that vitamins are necessary supplements for health that can make up for questionable food choices? What about taking oils to get Omega-3s or following a Paleo, South Beach, Weight Watchers, etc. diet plan? There is an abundance of information broadcast every day by various media outlets and not only is it confusing and contradictory, but it’s probably depleting your health and making you heavier in the long run.
We have known for decades that fatty foods are anything but good for you, but recent media reports glorifying saturated have caused confusion. Do not be fooled. There is nothing healthful about butter, bacon, cheese, or steak. Saturated fat poses numerous severe health risks of which everyone should be aware.
This recent confusion over saturated fat may be a result of people trying to blame carbs for the nation’s weight problems—even though the country’s grain intake is actually far lower than what it once was.

With all of the mounting excitement over nutrition and its possibilities in the media, the volume of health messages are increasing and many people are drowning in a sea of confusing and sometimes contradictory information.
