On today’s show, Dr. Ben interviews Dr. Chris Knobbe about the destructive nature of seed/vegetable oils. Dr. Knobbe shares his story of how he got to where he is today. They begin by touching on how inflammation is at the root of every western disease and discuss the role nutrition plays in inflammation. Dr. Knobbe speaks to oxalates and how they have impacted his health. They spend the second half of the show discussing what all of the health authorities call “heart healthy” oils and the fallacies in that stamp of approval. Dr. Knobbe gives the history, nutritional value, and oxidative nature of these oils. Incredibly, he shares how the first heart attack was recorded in 1912, and a little over 100 years later, heart disease is a leading cause of death in the US. They finish the show by talking about the science behind cholesterol and heart attack risk, while sharing the foods one should avoid to improve heart health.
