Why highly processed plant foods, with added sugar, vegetable oils and a bunch of chemicals are toxic to our biochemistry: An interview with Belinda Fettke
Manage episode 340507577 series 2998908
Today’s special guest is Belinda Fettke. The reason I wanted to talk to Belinda is because of the tremendous work she has done on understanding the vested interests behind the plant-based movement, that is exploding throughout NZ and Australia. I have shared a number of Belinda’s posts and youtube clips over recent years, and we will link again to those in the show notes.
Belinda got involved in this work when the Australian Health Practitioners Regulation Agency attempted to silence her husband Gary, who is an orthopaedic surgeon. Gary began advising his diabetic patients to reduce the amount of sugar and processed carbohydrates they were eating and to reintroduce natural healthy fats.
In our chat today, Belinda begins the story with how Gary’s cancer diagnosis led him to make dietary changes and the low-carb, high-fat diet. Gary like many other medical specialists who have suffered personal health problems realised that nutritional biochemistry provides the answers. This is what happens inside our bodies. The other stuff is all on the outside of the body and is driven by a lot of different agendas.
Belinda outlines all the evidence she has discovered over the last 4 years connecting these powerful vested interested groups, who not only have got the nutrition industry in their clutches but are also involved in the training of our doctors and dieticians. They want to silence those who speak up about why red meat and saturated fats are healthy foods, whereas the highly processed plant foods, with added sugar, vegetable oils and a bunch of chemicals that are currently marketed to us – are in fact toxic to our biochemistry.
