Denise Minger Brings To Light The Shoddy Science Of Nutrition

Nutritional health writer, lecturer, and book author Denise Minger is our special guest host in Episode 766 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.” LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES Podcast: Play in new window | Download (Duration: 38:39 — 31.2MB) Jimmy Moore is still away from his hosting chair over the next few months while he’s hard at work on writing his next book Keto Clarity set to release on August 5, 2014. This week he will be finishing up the raw recording of his bestselling 2013 book Cholesterol Clarity for the soon-to-be-released audiobook version. We’ll give you full details when that will be available for download to your listening device. But we haven’t left you hanging while Jimmy is away–we continue with the fabulous guest hosts on Mondays and Tuesdays as well as digging through the treasure trove of archived audio for the rebroadcast on Wednesdays of an LLVLC Show Classic. Today’s guest host is someone who has been deep in hibernation researching and writing her book for the past few years. But the long-awaited release of Death by Food Pyramid: How Shoddy Science, Sketchy Politics and Shady Special Interests Have Ruined Our Health by the super-smart former vegan and savvy nutritional health advocate Denise Minger from the “Raw Food SOS” blog is over and the book is ready to rock the health world. Anyone who knows Denise Minger realizes she leaves no stone unturned in keeping the scientific integrity of everything she writes about. Listen in as she shares about the forces that overrode common sense and solid science to launch a food pyramid phenomenon that bled far beyond U.S. borders to taint the eating habits of the entire modern world, how generations of flawed pyramids and plates endure as part of the national consciousness, and how the “one-size-fits-all” diet mentality these icons convey pushes us deeper into the throes of obesity and disease. And you’ll hear it all from the woman herself as she sits in the guest-hosting chair sharing her inspiration and wisdom from this stunning and controversial new book!

And its two key sponsors are among the most unusual bedfellows in Congress. http://www.npr.org/blogs/alltechconsidered/2013/11/21/246345010/how-healthcare-gov-is-giving-a-once-obscure-bill-a-boost

Frank Gavin: Five Ways to Use History Well

Why do policy makers and historians shun each other? Gavin observed that policy people want actionable information, certainty, and simple explanations. Meanwhile historians revel in nuance, distrust simple explanations and also distrust power and those who seek it. Thus historians keep themselves irrelevant, and policy makers keep their process ignorant. Gavin proposed five key concepts from history that can inform understanding and improve policy dramatically. http://www.longnow.org/seminars/02010/jul/12/five-ways-use-history-well/
