Toxic Sugar?

18-minute documentary about the real dietary villain: SUGAR. In only a few decades, there are now more obese people on the planet than there are undernourished. When it comes to getting fat, we've come to believe it's as simple as 'calories in' versus 'calories out' - if you want to shed the kilos, you need to burn more calories than you consume. But not all calories are the same. Some people absorb calories more efficiently and it matters what types of foods your calories are coming from. Sugar is now being proposed by experts as the new dietary villain that's making us fat and sick. Dr Maryanne Demasi investigates the bitter truth about the dangers of a sweet diet.

Sugar: The Bitter Truth

Robert H. Lustig, MD, UCSF Professor of Pediatrics in the Division of Endocrinology, explores the damage caused by sugary foods. He argues that fructose (too much) and fiber (not enough) appear to be cornerstones of the obesity epidemic through their effects on insulin.

The Trouble with Fructose: a Darwinian Perspective by Robert Lustig, MD

Robert Lustig's talks about the reason for the obesity epidemic.

Fat Chance: Fructose 2.0

A follow up to a very popular video by Dr. Robert Lustig, "Sugar: The Bitter Truth." He argues that sugar and processed foods are driving the obesity epidemic, which in turn affects our endocrine system. It's not our fault, it's what the food industry feeds us via agressive marketing. Are the nutrition guidelines ever going to change? Metabolic syndrome and obesity epidemic, fructose, calorie is not a calorie more in this fascinating video!

Simply explained: Fat gets stored when you experience insulin spike caused by carbs. This blocks leptin (a hormone that tells you when you had enough food), and makes you more hungry and you eat more. This affects dopamine tolerance (note: dopamine is a neurotransmitter, one of those chemicals that is responsible for transmitting signals in between the neurons of the brain) and makes you feel like you have to eat more. All this again causes more insulin release.

Fat Head - the truth about weight loss

While most people saw the documentary Super Size Me as an expose of the fast food industry, comedian and former health writer Tom Naughton saw it as a dare: He'd show that you could lose weight on a diet of burgers and fries. In addition to chronicling Naughton's weight drop, the film provides interviews with doctors, nutritionists and others to drive home his thesis that most of what we know about "healthy eating" is wrong.

The Science of Low Carb

Do you want to improve your health and weight by eating real food? After 150 years of on-off popularity, low carb diets are finally getting the scientific support they need to be taken seriously. An interview with Dr Eric Westman, a co-author of "A New Atkins for a New You".

Low Carb Explained

Do you want to improve your weight and health by eating real food? With no calorie counting, no diet products, no hunger? This talk from Ancestral Health Symposium 2011 shows you how to do it the natural way. The epidemics of obesity and diabetes are continuing to spread across the western world. Now we know why. Modern science has revealed our mistake. The unnecessary fear of natural food has inadvertently caused us to eat more of the new food that can make us hungrier, make us eat more, make us fat. Ever more people are realizing the mistake and seeing the solution. The food revolution is here. Please help spread the word once you know.

The Cholesterol Campaign and its Misleading Dietary Advice by Uffe Ravsnkov

Dr Ravnskov concludes that there is NO evidence that:

* too much saturated fat raises cholesterol * saturated fat causes heart disease * there is correlation between cholesterol and heart disease * high cholesterol causes heart disease * lowering cholesterol reduces heart disease * there is a correlation between obesity rates and the amount of fat consumption * there is a correlation between obesity rates and the amount of protein consumption

Dr Ravnskov concludes that there IS evidence that:

* there is a correlation between obesity rates and the amount of carbohydrate consumption * the obesity and diabetes epidemics are a direct result of the misleading cholesterol campaign

Heart of the Matter Part 1 - Dietary Villains

The biggest myths in the history of medicine is that saturated fat and cholesterol cause heart disease. The Real Cause of Heart Disease: INFLAMMATION

Heart of the Matter Part 2 - Cholesterol Drug War

Shocking facts about STATINS:

* Prof Rita Redberg: "Scientific data is manipulated to distract reality and hide side effects of statins." * Prof Beatrice Colomb: "It's a scientific fraud and organised crime." * Dr Ernest N Curtis, cardiologist: Research actually shows there are no beneficial effects of statins. Tking stating does NOT increase longevity at all. * Taking statins blocks the creation of Co Enzyme Q10 which essential for optimum heart muscle function. Statins have been shown to increase the risk of other health issues. * Cholesterol does NOT cause heart disease and it's essential for our health. * Prescribing more statins than needed: Based on NO scientific data, the definition of "high cholesterol" has been changing and the limits pushed down. People that don't have hight cholesterol are told they need to decrease their cholesterol levels (6.5 mmol/1 -> 5 mmol/1). * Statins are the most profitable drugs ever! * Conflict of interests: Rewards for doctors who are often pushed to prescribe statins by drug companies. * Research has been privatised: Profit comes first. Nowadays, 85% of scientific trials are funded by drug companies. * A trial funded by drug companies is 87% likely to report a drug's side effects! * Moderate exercice and healthy diet are far more powerful than any pill!
