A couple weeks ago author Gary Taubes went on the Dr. Oz show to debate proper diet. Before I go any further, you need to read Taubes “Good Calories, Bad Calories”. It’s a great book (I’m only about 100 pages into it and it’s excellent) on why the whole diet-heart hypothesis is crap and why cholesterol doesn’t really mean jack.
Basically the Oz show tried to make Taubes look like a hack. I won’t go into a ton of detail because I have a link to the actual show and then Tuabes response on the Livin La Vida Low Carb Man show. Taubes was also on Oz’s radio show several months prior to the taping of the Dr. Oz TV show and it was a much better interview.
