‘Insulin vs. Ketones – The Battle for Brown Fat’

Dr. Benjamin Bikman earned his Ph.D. in Bioenergetics and was a postdoctoral fellow with the Duke-National University of Singapore in metabolic disorders. He is currently a professor of pathophysiology and a biomedical scientist at Brigham Young University in Utah.

Dr. Bikman’s professional focus as a scientist and professor is to better understand chronic modern-day diseases, with a special emphasis on the origins and consequences of obesity and diabetes, with an increasing scrutiny of the pathogenicity of insulin and insulin resistance. He frequently publishes his research in peer-reviewed journals and presents at international science meetings.

Dr. Bikman has long been an advocate of a ketogenic diet in light of the considerable evidence supporting its use as a therapy for reversing insulin resistance. His website InsulinIQ.com promotes dietary clarity, healing, and freedom through evidence-based science about insulin resistance. Employing cell-autonomous to whole-body systems, Dr. Bikman’s recent efforts have focused on exploring the intimate associations between the metabolic and immune systems.

Toxic Sugar, the Real Villain Behind the Obesity Epidemic

In only a few decades, there are now more obese people on the planet than there are undernourished. When it comes to getting fat, we’ve come to believe it’s as simple as ‘calories in’ versus ‘calories out’ – if you want to shed the kilos, you need to burn more calories than you consume. But not all calories are the same. Some people absorb calories more efficiently and it matters what types of foods your calories are coming from.

The disturbing truth about what sugar is doing to children

Children who eat too much sugar are developing diseases that only alcoholics used to get

Eating too much sugar isn’t just a problem for our waistlines. It’s making us sick — very sick. Here, Robert Lustig, who is a professor of pediatric endocrinology at the University of California at San Francisco, explains just how much our health has taken a turn for the worse since the ’70s and the ’80s. Lustig predicts it could even be the downfall of American Medicare and Social Security. Learn more in Lustig’s books “The Hacking of the American Mind” and “Fat Chance.”
