Nina and Emily discuss how we got red meat so wrong, along with what studies show concerning women on a low-fat diet. And that there have been some large studies that have been done that have looked at women on low fat diets that have not shown any health benefits, none. Nina Teicholz: My name is Nina Teicholz. I am a science journalist, a book author. I wrote a book called The Big Fat Surprise that was sort of a groundbreaking book in that it made the argument that we had gotten it wrong on saturated fats. On all fats and particularly on saturated fats, which is a kind of fat that we think causes heart disease. Emily: Terrific. Nina Teicholz: My nerdy, favorite topics that I think is so important to understanding nutrition science, which is the difference between the kind of rigorous evidence that can show cause and effect, which is called a clinical trial and the kind of evidence that dominates our headlines pretty much every day, which is a weaker kind of science that can only show association not causation. And that is called epidemiology. Why is it so important to understand the difference between them?

Riddled with misinformation, drama, suspense and plenty of fear-mongering, these pseudo-science films question modern production agriculture and foods Americans love to enjoy. Created by the producers of Cowspiracy, you can about imagine the direction this film takes. Instead What the Health presents a great deal of weak epidemiological data, case studies on one or two people, or other inconclusive evidence.
Nina Teicholz looks at the lack of science supporting the dietary guidelines and the importance of why they need to change immediately.
