Dr. Richard Feinman exposes absurdity of the recent Sacks study

What is there not to love about Dr. Richard Feinman? This low-carb diets researcher and professor of biochemistry at the Brooklyn, NY-based SUNY Downstate Medical Center follows the evidence trail and draws his own conclusions based on what the data tells him without allowing any personal bias to get in the way. Unfortunately, not everyone in the research community holds such lofty standards for themselves.

Remember the recent Harvard study from Dr. Frank Sacks that was published in the New England Journal of Medicine in February 2009 supposedly declaring that low-fat and low-carb diets are identical and that the focus should be on calories alone? You’ll recall the media was gushing with headlines proclaiming the end to the diet debate because it’s all about the calories. Self-proclaimed health “experts” like Dr. David Katz were quoted in newspapers and on television smugly telling everyone “I told you so” that they’ve been preaching this common sense message for years and now they’ve been proven right.

Dr. Feinman says there’s only one problem with this–the study was DEAD WRONG! Find out why by clicking here to see a brilliant graph Dr. Feinman drew exposing the hypocrisy of the so-called Sacks study.
