Keynote Lecture: Why Nutritional Science Was Not Acknowledged during the past Two Centuries
In an effort to understand why nutrition is ignored in present day medical circles, I discuss the history of this subject during the past two centuries. The focus will be on the idea that disease, especially cancer, is a local disease.
Contemporary Evidence Indicating the True Value of Nutrition to Create and Restore Human Health
Nutrition, as provided by a whole food, plant-based dietary lifestyle, has considerably more value than generally known. For example, it controls genes—good and bad; it operates from whole foods not from supplements; each nutrient requires a tsunami of biochemical mechanisms to cause an effect; and it can be used both to prevent and, in many cases, to treat already diagnosed disease.
Myths in Nutrition That Mislead, with Very Unfortunate Consequences
Present evidence shows that consuming whole, plant-based foods provides dramatic health benefits. But the evidence for this message is being short-changed by highly questionable assumptions and claims in the vegan and vegetarian communities. This problem must be addressed in order for the skeptical general public to embrace this information.
