Nuts or Potatoes? Nut "Science" is Nonsense - Jeff Novick (VIDEO)
Jeff Novick MS RD is one of the top nutrition experts in the world. Jeff has an amazing talk he gives debunking some of the plethora of faulty science around nuts (studies usually paid for by the nut industry).
Today we bring you a short excerpt where Jeff talked about the now-discredited science that claimed that by replacing carbohydrates with nuts, you got some kind of improvement in diabetes markers. This study has been used to death by some people -- even in the vegan world -- to champion consumption of nuts.
But it's garbage research -- and even the study authors now agree with Novick, and have formally retracted their study in the journal that published it. That means no one should be citing this nonsense study anymore to try to claim nuts have some special benefits where diabetes is concerned.

How a Sick Doctor Healed Himself - Steve Lawenda MD (VIDEO)
Steve Lawenda MD was a Kaiser physician with some serious health problems. Not only that, his father and grandfather had both succumbed early to heart disease, diabetes and kidney failure.
As an obese, pre-diabetic doctor beginning to battle the same "genetic" (he thought) conditions that had destroyed close family members, how could Lawenda tell his patients how to get well -- when he himself was getting sicker and sicker?
Then he learned about the power of a healthy plant-based diet, and everything changed.
Watch Dr. Lawenda -- a rising rock star in the plant-based world -- talk about finding real health.
This is an excerpt from Dr.Lawenda's talk at the 2016 Healthy Lifestyle Expo.

Dr. Van Dyken discusses some of the foods that help create the healthiest biome -- you may want to include these if your own gut flora isn't as healthy as it could be. This is a video excerpt from Dr. Van Dkyen's talk at the 2016 Healthy Lifestyle Expo.
