Paging Gary Taubes: The man behind Good Calories, Bad Calories answers your questions
GREAT news down the pipeline: Gary Taubes, the New York Times writer who recently wrote Good Calories, Bad Calories, is fielding questions from you! (This article gives you a little insight into the point of view of the author)
A little about the book (from the NY Times):
"[Taubes's] thesis... is that nutrition and public health research and policy have been driven by poor science and a sort of pigheaded insistence on failed hypotheses. As a result, people are confused and misinformed about the relationship between what they eat and their risk of growing fat. He expands that thesis in the new book, arguing that the same confused reasoning and poor science has led to misconceptions about the relation between diet and heart disease, high blood pressure, cancer, dementia, diabetes and, again, obesity."
