    OBESITY MYTHS

    Eating And Exercise Are Strongly Linked

    Last week I read Gary Taubes’ wonderful book How We Get Fat and What To Do About It (2010). The book taught me nothing new, but I admired the clear way Gary expressed things. In particular he reminded me that it is impossible to lose weight by eating less or exercising more. Because of insulin, if you exercise more, you WILL eat more. If you eat less, you WILL move less. You cannot overcome it with willpower.

    Pause for a moment to consider how much of what most people and doctors “know” is bullcorn.  I continue to be amazed by it. Science and math, reading, are the only things on which you can rely. What people only tell you is worthless.

    BOOK

    Letter about my latest book ‘Medical Myths Doctors Believe’

    ​Here is a letter I received regarding my latest book Medical Myths Doctors Believe. 

    Dear Dr Anchors,

    I've just finished reading your excellent book 'Medical Myths ... Doctors Believe'. As a Doctor of Mathematics and some-time practitioner of Statistics, as well as a firm defender of the scientific method and stauch proponent of skepticism it was deeply encouraging and enjoyable to see my values shared and propogated by a physician (albeit a PhD-trained one); indeed such is the value of the book in promulgating the importance of rigorous, skeptical scientific judgement as applied to the multitude of claims, counter-claims and sub-standard studies which are rife in the field of medicine that I would stongly back its use as a core text during the undergraduate education of medical students.

    Anyway, the book was a pleasure to read and I look forward to another volume, perhaps with co-authors remedying some of the necessary omissions discussed in the 'Apologies' section of the book.

    Yours sincerely,

    John Smith (name changed)

    DR ANCHORS ON TV

    ​Dr. Anchors on Television on Oct 30, 2012 at 4 PM talking about his book ‘Medical Myths’

    ​I am somewhat certain I will be on TV cable channel 10 at 4:00 PM on Tuesday October 30. The show airs only in the Washington DC area, but hey, Washington is a big, important city. The show was supposed to be about my new book Medical Myths Doctors Believe about the fact that a huge part of what medical doctors know is false. OMG the practice of medicine has little to do with science. Commerce rules.

    EGGS

    The Egg Story

    Many of you, if you were watching the wrong channel, which was most channels, saw a story in the last two days with the headline "Egg yolks almost as dangerous as smoking". Anyone who has heard me talk, or traveled to foreign countries such as France where people eat a lot of eggs but outlive us by 4 years and have a lower risk of heart attack, or anyone who has read my new book Medical Myths Doctors Believe which teaches in plain terms how to evaluate evidence, or anyone with common sense, will know there is something wrong with the egg study.
