Dr. Zoë Harcombe on the Mess: The Money Vs. the Evidence

5

Dr. Zoë Harcombe has become an expert in the corruption and error plaguing the health sciences — a dire situation that she, like CrossFit Founder Greg Glassman, refers to as “The Mess.” Harcombe defines “The Mess” as “the escalating disease (and) the escalating medical costs, which many people are profiting from but none are combatting effectively.” During a presentation delivered on July 31 at the 2019 CrossFit Health Conference, Harcombe outlined many factors that contribute to this growing problem — specifically, the role of dietitians and the food and beverage industry in influencing how and what we eat, accreditation that regulates who can offer dietary advice, and the disparity between what we are told to eat and what the evidence suggests we should eat.

Incredible job, Dr. Harcombe. Please keep these coming. Fascinating and pivotal information, beautifully presented. And yes, ribeye last night, tri-tip tonight. grass fed burgers tomorrow. Beef heart on tap. Loved the tour through olive oil. Thanks also for the educated (and educational) pushback against rank-and-file dietitians (and their corporate $pon$or$.)

I've been waiting for this one to come up! Thank you to Zoe (I don't know how to do the little dots over the "e" on the keyboard") for one of the best presentations I've ever seen CrossFit publish, and thank you to CrossFit for sharing it!

Rachmaninoff and Crossfit?! It’s a shame there isn’t a workout to go with this masterpiece! WOD could be called “The Rack 2”!
