Today's interview with Dr. David G. Harper:
For 40 years, we have been slowly eating ourselves to death—and doing so based on outdates guidelines for what constitutes a healthy diet. This low-fat, high-carbohydrate grand experiment has led to epidemic increases in obesity and other chronic conditions, including diabetes, cardiovascular disease, cancer, and Alzheimer’s. Dr. David G. Harper is a health educator, professor, and cancer researcher. His new book, BioDiet: The Scientifically Proven, Ketogenic Way to Lose Weight and Improve Health (Page Two Books, May 7, 2019), offers a new, scientifically validated approach: a low-carbohydrate, high-fat, ketogenic plan that works with the body’s natural processes to improve health and reverse decades of damage caused by our collective carbohydrate addiction. BioDiet isn’t a “diet” in the usual sense: it’s not a quick fix designed to help shed 10 pounds before beach season. Drawing on his professional experience and the latest research in nutritional science, David explains why BioDiet can result in the significant reduction, and sometimes even the elimination, of chronic disease by:• reducing inflammation in the blood vessels, which causes heart disease; • lowering and stabilizing the high blood-glucose levels responsible for diabetes; • reducing inflammation in the brain that contributes to Alzheimer’s disease; and • reducing the glucose and insulin that promote the growth of cancer cells. “Dr. Harper explains, in simple terms, the complex biological mechanisms involved in chronic disease and how diet change can have a profound healing effect.” — Jay Wortman, MD DR.
