I plan a longer post in the coming days with the latest updates in how my diet change and quest for increased personal discipline is going, and I can tell you that the information I learned (or, perhaps more accurately, had confirmed) in the video below will feature prominently in it.
This video was sent to me this morning by mom, who had it sent to her by my aunt and uncle – who just happen to be two of the smartest and most informed people I know. It was sent with this message:
Invest 1 hour and learn a lot about diet and health. I guarantee you will be shocked and surprised. This is very important for your health. We have been misled for many years. What this guy is saying is true.
I immediately started watching it, became enthralled, and then decided that since a) it was about heart disease and b) a convenient link to download the iTunes was provided, that I should download and listen to the rest while getting some exercise. So I did.
Consume the information however you want to, but make sure you consume it. As I delved into my own personal research about health and diet, I continue to come across this information from highly respected sources. Today helped a great deal in solidifying my belief in it.
So here is Dr. David Diamond of the University of South Florida, discussing how bad science that is fraught with fraudulence and conflict of interest thanks, in part, to the “avaricious” interests of big business, has contributed in a major way to the obesity epidemic in America.
Note that the talk is a little over an hour, so here is the iTunes link if you want to download it and listen on a mobile device.
