A presentation by William Harris, M.D.. Improved version at http://youtu.be/hBGBnzwgc_Y

After a short movie of some of his athletic and skydiving activities, Bill Harris, M.D., founding member of VSH, discusses some of the errors of the nutritional establishment, beginning with its use of nutrient/weight ratios instead of the more scientific and simple sorting of foods by nutrient/Calorie ratio. He compares some popular sugar and fat laden recipes, versus high nutrient/Calorie vegan foods and suggests that America${q}s obesity problem is in part the result of a fundamental mathematical error. He also highlights the confusion stemming from the concept of "servings" defined in terms of cans, containers, cups, loaves, oz, packets, pieces, portions, slices, sprigs, tbsps, tsps, wedges, and finally variable gram weights, with further opportunity for error at each step. Harris also criticizes the defects of some popular diet programs, both veggie and non-veggie, and discusses the importance of dietary fat and the difference between good fat and bad fat.
