While I certainly wish him well, I hope this might be a catalyst for change.

We can only hope.


If he was following the AHA guidelines, there ya go.
If he was not following the AHA guidelines, he's a hypocrite.
Either way, he's got a big problem.

Yep, the American MI Association has got a lot of explainin' to do, and since Nov 13, on their press releases pages:
...crickets...

I've seen one unsourced comment that they are blaming "genetics", but that's actually no excuse. Dr. Davis put himself out of business as an interventional cardiologist because all of his patients stopped having "events" (all; not just the ones without FH).

In Dr. Davis' programs, factors like adverse ApoE and elevated Lp(a) just mean that you need to be more strict about following a diet that is low in small LDL particles, low in inflammatory antagonists, and high in beneficial micronutrients like EPA, DHA, Vitamin D and Mg (and that would be pretty close to the opposite of the AHA diet) ... and should we mention optimized thyroid - which the AHA has probably never heard of, and would not know how to test, diagnose and treat if they did. Gut flora? Who?

Do not expect the AHA to correctly react to this in less than 20 years. Just grant them the same credibility that you give to the USDA, ADA (any of them), and Big Carb™ generally.

Right on Boundless!


My personal measure of Dr. Davis's influence and success in his patients' wellness is the huge changes in local food stores.  Organic produce is now readily available and often not all that much more expensive than pesticide laden produce.  Grass fed meats and poultry are on supermarket shelves and prices are not all that budget breaking.  Same for wild caught fish and seafood.  There are even several brands of avocado mayo!  People are purchasing enough of these items to encourage the expansion of availability. 


Low carb, high fat and all its variations works so well that people who embraced this way of eating years ago simply don't have much medical needs.  Many of their medical problems have been reversed and these people have much more energy than their naysayers. Thriving is not the same as "being managed" by their doctors and medicines.....and more people are noting the difference. 


I agree with you that it might take 20 years for the AHA and similar groups to change as most entrenched bureaucracies do.  They might do so sooner when they lose their donors to the ills caused by "Big Carb" or perhaps more of their staffs and their families experience adverse health events at a young age.  When you realize that Wheat Belly was only published 6 years ago, the overall changes in foods, perceptions and improved health have been enormous and that knowledge is increasing geometrically.
