Is awesome. His other stuff is great too. Tell them to sit down and read all of Stephan's cited studies. Everything is available online these days. Tell them that everything is available online these days, since if they are proponents of the lipid or cholesterol hypothesis, they're likely living in the distant past.

edit: It's pretty ridiculous that a falsehood can get to this point. What would happen if you asked them to prove to you that the way you are eating is harmful to cardiovascular health? How exactly would they pull that off? Point at a wheaties box? Guys like Taubes have done such a masterful and dazzling job of falsifying the lipid hypothesis that we tend to forget that there never was any evidence for it in the first place. The burden of proof rests on the side that makes the assertion after all.
