We talked about my own story (how I became involved in this work) and addressed topics like the efficacy of statin drugs, the link between fat and diabetes, the most important voices in nutrition medicine and more.

As many of you know, Jimmy is not only an excellent interviewer, but also one of the most gracious and friendly people you’ll ever meet. It was a pleasure to be invited on his show, and I hope to do it again soon.

If you’re not already a subscriber to his excellent podcast, you can download this episode directly from his website. But if you want to stay on top of what’s happening in nutrition and health, I’d highly recommend subscribing via iTunes, email or RSS.

Hi great work reaching JMoore. What do you make of these videos:
http://tinyurl.com/drgregercomplete Watch for 9.5 hours (he is a vegan Cornell doctor going over latest pubmed studies) and I emailed him he said he only has time to read pubmed.org studies but actually agreed w/ The China Study and protein/cancer-growth (even whey!). Here are 1,600 of his 2010 studies he sent http://tinyurl.com/drgregerPDFs [.zip] via snailmail CD-R (studies were in his food checklist: http://tinyurl.com/drgreger2010playlist).

He also wrote a book called _Heart Failure – Diary of a Third Year Medical Student_ which I thought was well written and critical of medical school like you mention in the podcast

Have you read Denise Minger’s rebuttal of Campbell’s conclusions from the China Study data?

There was more of a link between wheat and chronic disease than there was between animal protein and the same. For some reason (maybe he failed statistics?), Campbell can’t seem to come to terms with that.

I thought this was a fantastic interview–the kind of thing you could pass on to friends and family. Crystal clear explanations. Thanks, Chris!

In the interview it seemed like you didn’t like Mark Hyman very well. I read a book of his and it was pretty good. He’s all about whole non-refined foods and he seems to be able to treat diabetes without going low carb. It sounded like you really didn’t think that was possible? I think he uses e.g. alpha lipoic acid to increase insulin sensitivity. I was a little surprised that you didn’t think much of him, but you probably know more about him than me.

He promotes a vegan diet with soy products. Definitely not optimal from my point of view.
