There's no denying the advocates for a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet are under major attack right now from the mainstream powers that be. The meteoric rise in popularity of nutritional health plans like Paleo, real food, Whole30, and keto in recent years is making a lot of people in the pharmaceutical drug industry very uncomfortable. In the UK, one of the ways they try to discredit doctors and other medical professionals from speaking out about topics like cholesterol and medications intended to lower cholesterol like statins is to spread lies and innuendo about what their position is on the subject. That's exactly what happened in two recent Daily Mail articles written by health editor Barney Calman you can read below. Statin deniers are putting patients' lives at risk, says Health Secretary Matt Hancock as he condemns doctors who cast doubt on their effectiveness: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6764823/Doctors-peddle-myths-effectiveness-statins-putting-lives-risk-says-Minister.html AND There is a special place in hell for the doctors who claim statins don't work, says BARNEY CALMAN: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-6764363/There-special-place-hell-doctors-claim-statins-dont-work-says-BARNEY-CALMAN.html The three UK keto leaders that were targeted in these hit pieces by Calman include Dr. Zoe Harcombe, Dr. Malcolm Kendrick, and Dr. Aseem Maholtra. As someone who is very familiar with all three of these incredible champions of the low-carb message in Great Britain, health podcaster and international bestselling author of KETO CLARITY Jimmy Moore has quite a bit to say about what is transpiring across the pond with outright untruths and distortions of the facts. Listen in to hear Jimmy read Dr. Maholtra's letter to the editor of The Daily Mail demanding a public apology and retraction in this episode.

“Seventy five percent of people don't take a statin anymore because people are tired of the side effects and tired of the statistical games the drug companies are playing with people's health.” — Jimmy Moore
