Ok, I am even starting to freak myself out with the current level of Taubesophilia I am exhibiting. But these discussions are good. Taubes is going in and mixing it with experts who have had a medical background and decades of clinical experience - and coming out of the altercations with his reputation in tact, if not enhanced.
Taubes can also be credited with not only changing the opinions of many experts, but also of at least making many experts reconsider their views. They are beginning to see what it is that makes GT's GCBC compelling and worthy of further investigation.
In this radio series of four parts, Taubes discusses a wide variety of topics including the inertia that afflicts research and the Mediterranean diet, calorie restriction and the application of Occam's Razor.
Part 2, part 3 and part 4.
