Default Dr Èvelyne Bourdua-Roy: Is she “Canada’s Tim Noakes”.

Quote:
Quebec family physician Dr Èvelyne Bourdua-Roy looks set to become “Canada’s Tim Noakes”. Bourdua-Roy’s regulatory body, the Quebec College of Physicians, is investigating her for comments on diet and nutrition she made on a radio talk-show.

Members of Dietitians of Canada (DoC) lodged complaints with the College, claiming that Bourdua-Roy made “inappropriate declarations”. They also claim that she gave “medical opinions” that could “mislead the public on low-carb, high-fat (LCHF)/ketogenic diets”. (Ketogenic diets are very low-carb, very high-fat but low-to-moderate protein).

The parallels with Bourdua-Roy and Prof Tim Noakes are striking even as there are differences. ....continues at link

Dr Bourdua-Roy also has regular column at DietDoctor and has been trained by Dr Fung in LCHF and fasting. https://www.dietdoctor.com/authors/...bourdua-roy-m-d

Personally, I think I have the right to be misled. Or at any rate, the right to lead me doesn't come from the sort of credentials handed out at the end of the Wizard of Oz.

“Human beings evolved by eating this way for hundreds of thousands of years,” the authors say.

Quote:
“In fact, humans have only been eating an abnormally high quantity of carbohydrates (bread, pasta, potatoes, rice, fruits and sweets) for about four decades.”


This bit is funny, though. 1)low carb/ketogenic diets work, demonstrably so. 2) But they're off at least ten thousand years, for many of our ancestors. For most of us, our ancestors didn't eat carbohydrates so we shouldn't either is demonstrably false.

This doesn't mean that we should eat carbohydrates. It's just that the reason those of us who shouldn't eat them shouldn't eat them is that we get good results when we don't eat them.

If we make claims we can't support, we're liable to spend way too much time defending the unsupportable, too little time working to our strengths.

Of course I support her right to say true things about nutrition on the radio. Sort of got side tracked there.
