Have you ever tried to explain to a friend or relative why the lipid hypothesis is just plain wrong? Why dietary intake of saturated fat and cholesterol have nothing whatsoever to do with increasing incidence of heart disease (and may perhaps be protective against it)? Why a low-fat diet is actually unhealthy? Have you ever felt like the words got stuck in your mouth, or like you couldn’t find the right way to explain it all? Or maybe you felt like you could explain it, but you didn’t have scientific studies at hand to reference when they said “show me the science?”
Chris Kresser, The Healthy Skeptic, recently released two beautifully done videos (really just one video, broken into two parts) that may be the answer to your prayers. Just email your friends or relatives these videos, and let Chris do the talking for you.
The video is called “I have high cholesterol, and I don’t care.” Catchy, isn’t it?
