Separating Fact From Fiction - with Dr. Georgia Ede, MD
It turns out that the brain and the body aren't that different when it comes to the risk of toxicity from too much glucose and carbohydrates. As a practicing psychiatrist, Dr. Georgia Ede has seen the benefits of reducing carbohydrate intake on the mental health of her patients. She shares her experience and the unfortunate reluctance of some to acknowledge this association.
Georgia is also an expert in nutritional science, and she lends her take on incomplete and baseless reports such as the EAT-Lancet report. Is it science? Or is it vegan propaganda cloudy by faulty science? Georgia dissects the science and clearly shows how the report falls short of its "evidence based" claims.
