Default Why Do We Have an Obesity Epidemic?

Why Do We Have an Obesity Epidemic?

"Eat fat to lose weight and reverse Type 2 Diabetes." So, states leading Cardiologist and author of the Pioppi Diet. Aseem Malhotra, who is Jon Gaunt’s guest this week on Shooting from the Lip.


Aseem is convinced that “Sugar is the new tobacco and Mainstream media is waking up to this at last.”

He believes that the present dietary advice is plain wrong and that is it based on flawed science. He is clear that “Saturated fat does not clog the arteries.” And that “High fat diets are more effective than low fat diets in terms of losing weight.”

He also believes that “This whole fat myth needs to be completely abolished it’s a distraction and it supports an industry that takes out saturated fats and replaces it with starch and sugar. It is a nonsense.”

Aseem claims that “50 percent of people with diabetes and obesity are able to reverse it or send it into remission by cutting out sugar starchy carbs and ultra-processed food. So that is potatoes, rice, pasta, bread and starchy carbs and processed food.”

The problem according to Dr Malhotra is that “For far too long we have let the food industry get away with deceiving the public, a lot of these products are marketed as being healthy when they are not. This is not acceptable.”

However, he also shoots from the lip on the subject of Big Pharma declaring, “Statins are the most lucrative and prescribed drug in the history of medicine, the total revenue is estimated to reach one TRILLION US Dollars next year. There is a lot of money involved in this flawed hypothesis. This is completely wrong and has to change.”

He believes that companies like Coca Cola and McDonalds should not be allowed to sponsor sport and that we need tobacco style shock photos on unhealthy food products.

Aseem passionately declares that, “We now need to focus on ultra-processed food and we need to educate the public that they cannot trust the current dietary guidelines and regulations.”

This interview goes much further than just the usual clichés that surround the sugar tax debate and is vital listening. Don’t miss it.

Is there any doubt that the golden goose of statins is ever going to be maligned in the midst of the wallet wielded by Big Pharma without one epic of a fight? Go Aseem, you need much company, but it's the right approach.

Recently made my biannual visit to the doctor's office. Left alone to wait (as we all are) I noticed a difference. There was a very large poster on the wall behind the doctor's chair. "Don't be afraid of Statins" clearly stating all the good things Statins could do for me. The wall monitor, in the meantime, repeated (albeit silently) the same mantra. My cholesterol (209) prompted the Statin sales pitch, to which my answer is still, "Never."

In the United States it has been proven that anything can happen, especially since 2016. Someday soon, medications may be forced upon those under Medicare.

They are already forced upon people under many private health plans, where my actually healthy cholesterol profile would be a mark against me.

My cholesterol profile is also quite healthy, but the overall number is just over the mark for these plans, so every year when my doctor filled out the form for the insurance he also had to explain why my cholesterol was actually healthy so I wouldn't get dinged. I'm sure he had to do this for tons of his patients.
