  1. Gary’s presentation explains how eating the wrong stuff: sugar, starch and vegetable oil products raise the amount of oxidisable LDL in the cell membranes and circulation and thus cause cardiovascular disease, premature degenerative disease and cancer. It is a shame that he can’t produce more new material but he does have sufficient information out there that can help you make wise choices for your future health.


  2. As I wrote elsewhere (FoodMed where his “trial” is also being covered) if he’d invented a way of amputating diabetics’ feet in half the time he’d be feted as a hero.

    Preventing the amputations in the first place, not so much.
