Seminar: Is our health being hijacked?
“Eat less!” “Exercise more!” “Avoid saturated [ Fat ] • A subclass of lipids that includes fatty acids and triglycerides • Any of the fatty acids and fatty acid esters of glycerol which are solid at room temperature, compared to oil, which is a liquid at room temperature • Adipose tissue...

These are the infamous “risk factors” commonly known as syndrome-x or metabolic syndrome. They have a high correlation to heart attack, stroke and/or diabetes. Researchers have been working for decades to stem these illnesses, but health statistics tell us they’re on the wrong track. The last 40 years shows a steady decline in health. Moreover, the so-called “healthy” regimens are no insurance.
Is it something missing from our diets? Is there something in our food supply that we need to avoid? Could there be a conspiracy? We are going to address these questions and challenge some of the longstanding assumptions about the food we eat and their connection to our catastrophically declining health.
As is our custom, we are going to touch on the biochem and research findings for some answers that might surprise you. Is it possible that the solution is right under our noses?
The good news is that correlation is not causation.
