Plant Positive Strikes Back: Nutrition Past and Future

Plant Positive has released a brilliant new series on YouTube titled ‘Nutrition Past and Future‘, featuring 44 videos that address the misleading claims of Paleo, Primal and Low-Carb diet advocates including Gary Taubes, Robert Lustig, Loren Cordain, Mark Sisson, Robb Wolf, Andreas Eenfeldt, Anthony Colpo, and members of the Weston A. Price Foundation among others. This new series expand on Plant Positive’s two previous video series, ‘The Primitive Nutrition Series Playlist‘ and ‘The Primitive Response Playlist‘.

The Journalist Gary Taubes

Taubes gained prominence as an advocate of the low-carb diet following the publication of his article “What If It’s All Been a Big Fat Lie?” in the New York Times in 2002. Afollow-up articleexpressed the concerns of scholars that Taubes interviewed who complained that Taubes misinterpreted their statements and ignored much of the research that they presented, including research linking red meat with colorectal cancer. It was already clear from this point that Taubes was a snake oil salesperson and Plant Positive makes this fact even clearer in Nutrition Past and Future which in particular addresses Taubes’s bookGood Calories, Bad Calories
