In this episode, I talk about how Joe Rogan recently lashed out at the agricultural scientist Kevin Folta when Kevin discussed an alternative interpretation of the scientific data that was different than the one that Joe preferred and was familiar with. Following lockstep with Chris Kresser, an alternative health guru that has been deeply influenti…
 
Cult-like behavior among groups that promote various health interventions or lifestyle practices is the norm. Such groups NOT being cult-like is extremely rare. These groups, no matter what they promote, overhype benefits and underplay risks. They condescend to outsiders; they engage in dogmatic proclamations; and they are highly resistant to new i…
 
In this episode, I look at press releases, posters, scientific publications, and @peterattiamd’s recent review of PR Lotion. I show that the press releases announcing research do not link to any credible peer-reviewed research, despite Momentous-funded research apparently taking place at four separate research institutions. I show that the one peer…
 
When it comes to promoting resistance training for health, lifting bros want it both ways. They refuse to let anyone criticize any of their current lifting practices—despite an injury rate between 1-2 injuries per year for most strength sports [1]. They downplay increasing rates of body dysmorphia among men [2], eating disorders [3], and the psycho…
 
Resistance training is frequently promoted online as if it has no risks or downsides. But this is mainly because promoting resistance training like this advances the careers of those who use this kind of messaging. It isn’t to benefit the their audiences. It’s to benefit the promoters. And those of us who have been in the lifting game for a while k…
 
In this episode, I ask the question: which diet would produce more nutrient deficiencies. Using the nutrient calculator Chronometer, I am surprised to find that an all-whole wheat bagel diet actually produces fewer nutrient deficiencies than an all-ribeye diet. If one was forced to choose between eating only wheat or meat, and one was aiming at the…
 
This episode examines the purported connection between obesity and COVID outcomes. While obesity does somewhat worsen COVID outcomes, the impact is modest and dramatically overstated. These data have also been weaponized by antivaxxers and politicians for cynical ends. Many COVID-obesity narratives create a false dichotomy between vaccination and o…
 
In this episode, I discuss facts and myths about Ancel Keys. If carbs are the cause of obesity, as they are for many (non-scientist) diet book authors, then someone is *responsible* for making us eat so many carbs. Ancel Keys provides a convenient enemy. He provides a unitary target, a sole cause, a single demon, one story. But how TRUE is this sto…
 
It is now widely accepted that eggs have no meaningful impact on blood cholesterol levels. Dietary cholesterol is said not to impact blood cholesterol. But is this true? The impact of eggs on dietary cholesterol—and health—really depends on background diet and genetics. Now, it’s true that the impact of dietary cholesterol on blood cholesterol is q…
 
A study looking at people with genetic variants that mimic the effect of statins and PCSK9 inhibitors showed significantly worse cognition and brain area among those with the statin variants. This suggests that statins may negatively impact the brain (PMID 35953131). This suggests that important benefits to cerebrovascular disease may be counterbal…
 
In this episode, I provide critical, science-based answers to the following questions: Don’t traditional clinical tests miss the glucose variability that can only be detected by CGM? Doesn’t high blood glucose predict heart disease, cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, etc.? So, this is a reason for non-diabetics to use continuous glucose monitoring (CGM),…
 
In this episode, I explain why @drandygalpin's defense of the deadlift is actually a clear demonstration that it is a dangerous lift. Specifically, he notes at least four conditions that must be met for the deadlift to be safe: appropriate positioning, volume, intensity, and complexity. I note that it is difficult to meet those conditions consisten…
 
In this episode, I discuss why the evidence pyramid is a misleading and sometimes an unscientific way to interpret evidence; why anecdote is sometimes right; and why expert opinion is always the final word. Specifically, sometimes systematic reviews and meta-analyses of randomized controlled trials are misleading, either designed improperly or usin…

It is in vogue in resistance training circles to only publicly promote the benefits of resistance training while avoiding any mention of downsides. The rationale that mention of downsides and risks will discourage people from resistance training. In this video, I talk about my journey in resistance training and how my overzealous application of tra…
 
In this video, by looking at press releases, interviews, and scientific papers, I show very clearly that the FDA does not specifically endorse the use of chemical sunscreen nor does it call chemical sunscreen safe. Rather, FDA explicitly says that chemical sunscreens are NOT Generally Recognized As Safe and Effective (GRASE), allowing their use onl…

In this clip taken from a live IGTV with @muscle__master, I discuss how frequent testosterone injections for testosterone replacement therapy should be, as well as how "physiological" the typical TRT dosages are. I note that wide fluctuations in testosterone can produce side effects that may be mitigated by more frequent injections. However, more f…

In this episode, I discuss Inclisiran, an injectable PCSK9 inhibitor that produces dramatic LDL cholesterol reductions with just two intramuscular injections per year. I spell out the implications of such a dramatic reduction in LDL cholesterol and point out the massive potential impact that this might have on the future of cardiovascular disease p…
 
In this episode, I cover a 2021 study (PMID: 34531021) that shows that most statin-related muscle side effects are actually caused by the placebo effect. When participants in this crossover trial were assigned to placebo, they experienced nearly as many muscle-related side effects as they did when they were assigned to received a statin. The side e…
 
In this episode, part 3 of the Huberman salt episode debunking, we dive deeper into the sources that Huberman uses and why they are not considered legitimate by scientists. As we saw in parts 1 and 2 (and will see in subsequent parts in more detail), Huberman seems to draw from the LMNT website to make his scientific case. In this part, we examine …
 
This video, part 2 of the video series on Huberman’s episode #63, will focus on a few of Huberman’s broad claims. Here is a rough outline of what will be discussed in this series, of which part 2 will be the beginning of the remainder (which will ultimately be 6 to 10 parts): First, I will introduce the podcast. Second, I will talk about the sodium…

In this episode, I lay out the basic rhetorical and scientific structure of the podcast episode "Using Salt to Optimize Mental & Physical Performance | Huberman Lab Podcast #63", Dr. Huberman's conflicts of interest (he earns 15% for each purchase from his affiliate LMNT), and explain the context of the different pieces of content presented in this…
 
In this episode, I dissect a 2013 study showing that soy protein blunts increases in post-resistance training testosterone in men (PMID 24015701). I discuss the implications of this finding in the context of a meta-analysis that suggests that soy does not affect testosterone in men (PMID 33383165), as well as the debate about the role of post-exerc…
 
In this episode, I show that all dietary guidelines in all countries of the world are essentially the same and are in many cases identical. Nonetheless, there is a massive variability in the prevalence of obesity, from 1.4% to 42%, despite these nearly identical guidelines. I show furthermore that the time elapsed since the implementation of the gu…
 
In this episode, I analyze 12 figures to show that the Chinese obesity epidemic is largely attributable to increases in dietary fat, specifically from pork. I follow this up by commenting on the work of Barry Popkin, suggesting that the Chinese dietary changes are part of a broader, nearly universal trend known as the nutrition transition. Sources:…
 
In this episode, in contrast with a widespread conspiracy theory, I show that the dietary guidelines do not promote junk food and that Americans have ignored the dietary guidelines by eating refined grains and sugar far in excess of them.

In this episode, I show that Americans do not care about or follow the dietary guidelines. Therefore the dietary guidelines could not have caused the obesity epidemic. The belief that the dietary guidelines contributed to the obesity epidemic is contradicted by the available evidence and is a conspiracy theory. References cited (in the order mentio…
 
In this episode, I show how sugar intake has declined dramatically for two decades.
