Dr William Davis

Dr William Davis is a cardiologist, author and health crusader from Milwaukee, USA. He's the author of the bestselling book Wheat Belly, as well as his latest offering, Undoctored.

Listen in as I ask Dr William:

* The role of cholesterol in the body and what our cholesterol goals should be.

* Why wheat causes so many problems.

* Can you reverse Type 2 Diabetes?

* His ingredients for a happy recipe for life!

You’ll also discover:

* Cholesterol is just a crude marker of heart disease, but we have better ways to count the particles in your blood that cause heart disease.

* The best diets to follow to avoid heart problems.

* The weakness of research into statins.

* The kind of fibre that is beneficial to us and we don’t get them from grains.

* The withdrawal process you can go through when you eliminate grains.

A couple of things William said resonated with me:

“Nutrition is so important for heart health.”

“I saw heart disease reverse numerous times - too many to count - but it did not involve statin drugs. It involves things that you have in your kitchen, things you get at the health food store and simple things like that.”

“Not preventing heart disease pays very well. Preventing heart disease pays comparatively nothing - just a bit of advice!”

“It’s an unprecedented time for collaboration and it's making us smarter than the doctor!”
