Dr. Steven Gundry on The Myth of Whole Grains

May 28, 2017

Dr. Steven Gundry radio interview

Quick Notes:
– whole grains are super unhealthy due to lectins (poisons) present in the grain’s hull

– for thousands of years, people have tried to get rid of the hull and eating white rice. only poor people ate whole grains.

– kelloggs company and chiquita banana company joined forces to promote their cereal

– artificial sweeteners make us gain weight and destroy good gut bacteria. one packet of splenda apparently killed off 50% of the good gut bacteria in one study. (i think this was done on rats?)

harvard scientists were paid off by sugar industry to make false claims about their products

The sugar industry paid scientists in the 1960s to play down the link between sugar and heart disease and promote saturated fat as the culprit instead, newly released historical documents show.

The Harvard scientists and the sugar executives with whom they collaborated are no longer alive. One of the scientists who was paid by the sugar industry was D. Mark Hegsted, who went on to become the head of nutrition at the United States Department of Agriculture, where in 1977 he helped draft the forerunner to the federal government’s dietary guidelines. Another was Dr. Fredrick J. Stare, the chairman of Harvard’s nutrition department. – How the Sugar Industry Shifted Blame to Fat (NY Times)
