Public Presentations to Date

Here's a handy reference to find most of the public presentations I've given at conferences that are not exclusively academic in nature.

Against the motion, "Don't Eat Anything With a Face." Intelligence Squared US debate. New York, NY. December 4, 2013.

Here is the full video:

Good Fats, Bad Fats: Separating Fact From Fiction. Sponsored by Chicago WAPF chapter, held at the Urban Prairie Waldorf School. Chicago, IL. November 16, 2013.
This is a slightly updated version of a talk I originally gave in Dallas, TX at the annual Wise Traditions conference on November 12, 2011. That version is available for purchase. I posted an 18-minute clip from it on YouTube:

Available for purchase soon from Fleetwood Onsite Conference Recording

  3. Hi Chris,

    I've just listened to your 2 back-to-back interviews with Jimmy Moore. I enjoyed your enthusiasm and clarity in communicating research and nutrition issues. The friend with the million peanut butter sandwiches will stay with me always.

    The only thing that made me sad was your promotion of palm oil. My reservation isn't health related, but environment and sustainability. If we only think about homo sapiens, we're likely to destroy the world around us and threaten our own survival (bees are a well known case in point.) With palm oil it's larger mammalian cousins of ours.



    1. Suzanne I did some research into this it turns out palm oil is actually quite sustainable, people have been growing and harvesting the oil for centuries first for their own use and for trade, but now I know they are planting them in areas they were not there before, but my question is what was there before? most likely waste land not being used? I mean tropical areas are not all food producing forests many are semi swamp, and open dry scrub, some are really rocky and won't produce much resources for anyone including the animals. also palm oil being so profitable encourages that type of crop rather than selling it to a corporation that will tear up the land to grow ethanol corn or soy, two of the worst food crops ever. if we stop buying palm oil the people will lose a vital resource the land torn up or abandoned for other less sustainable or environmentally friendly practices, palm trees live for 75 years or more and other plants do colonize around them so there is still diversity, so I have read. the only reason I can see they are demonizing it is because palm oil is a competitor for other crap veggie oils that are very bad for us. healthier for humans something is the more it will be demonized by the crap sellers who will use lies, half truths to get people to vote with their mouths and wallets against it. oh yea no chemicals are needed, soy fields are loaded with pesticides nad herbicides. no need for the trees since palm oil is very resistant to fungus and pests. like coconut oil and I am sure the palms are like other trees they have varieties one variety not resistant? plant a differnet kind or hybridize. I would take a palm oil farm over the others if I were living there because the trees are permanent, they provide habitate for birds and animals and shade and other plants are allowed to grow around them. and when the trees are cut down for whatever reason they can be used by the natives for building materials. so I buy palm oil or products with them without nay qualms. soy on the other hand? it is crap.

  4. I am curious how come with all the benefits from getting enough nutrients are we so depleted and why do doctors tell us we get enough from our food? and why does the fda want to classify vitamins as a drug, and hence must be eliminated from foods and you have to get them by prescription? what is up with that? so how do you get people to accept a process that destroys the nutrients in food but still it be palatable and seemingly healthy? irradiation? I am under the strong impression that such a goal is for purposes of population control, aka eugenics and slavery for the rest if you can withhold nutrients from people even tho they are eating enough caloires they will die from disease but before they do the healthy populations who aer allowed the nutrients will pay for the treatments of the sick to up the profits and to give the illusion that the medical community and government is actually trying to save lives? kill two birds with one stone? thus the healthy population will be duped into thinking they are working to make life better not pay for the murder of their fellow man.I found for myself that eating fruits veggies and meats and fermented products is not enough to up my health I have had to supplement heavily with vita b,c, minerals, vitad3 (honestly dont' believe I make in the skin) I eat plenty of butter, I love cheese, when I say I eat enough butter is eating a half of a stick enough per day with 20,000 iu of vitad3 okay I read being obese your body sequesters vitad3 so the blood levels fall and stay low.) so this is why I am suffering like I am. thanks for your responses
