Why We Get Fat: An Alternative Hypothesis – by Gary Taubes

Gary Taubes’ lecture at the Cleveland HeartLab symposium is well worth 50 minutes of your time.


A primary care physician by training, my passion is researching and writing about the importance restoring patient centered care, supporting independent private physicians, promoting free-market solutions and seeking sustainable fiscal policy in healthcare.
