    Et ego in Arcadia.

    I guess most of us know whether to pay attention to highly educated and experienced medical doctors or to the twitchy-fingered board trolls who feel threatened by them.

    It would be better if they were able to sit on their hands, but it's not going to happen.

He does promote ketosis as being a way to optimize health but he never says anyone who isn't constantly in ketosis is dooooomed.

    Read the book first. Then come back and criticize.
    haven't read his book, but he's all over the internet saying that stuff! in his debates with paul jaminet and others. i'm not making this shit up.

    In a debate situation stuff gets taken out of context, exaggerated and mis-represented by the opponent, thrown back and forth. Then the debate is Monday Morning quarterbacked by a bunch of other sites and bloggers further distorting the truth. You have managed to get a very slanted view of his actual positions. Beyond distorted, just flat out wrong. Really, his book is excellent. Well worth the read.

    Now, now. Don't bite Lewis' head off just because somebody took your coffee away.

    He has a book? *makes a note* I'll read anything. Right now I'm reading the Starch Solution... although mostly for giggles, and I got it from the library. I'm not paying money for it.
