7 of Pete Evans' most controversial health claims

Pete Evans is back in the news this week after calls were made to remove his controversial documentary The Magic Pill from Netflix. The show, which is narrated and produced by Paleo Pete himself, features people with conditions ranging from asthma to autism who claim their symptoms were alleviated by a high protein, high fat diet.

In fact, Australian Medical Association President Dr Tony Bartone is the latest health professional to speak out, saying that vulnerable people are being misinformed.

Speaking to Fairfax, Dr Bartone said, "I respect Pete Evans' ability and expertise in the kitchen, but that's where it begins and ends," he said. "I would never dream of telling him how to prepare a meal. However, when it comes to the trusted health of our patients, everyone should turn to a health professional. That is, in the first instance, your GP."

And we couldn't help but think that this isn't the first time the My Kitchen Rules judge has raised eyebrows and shared certain health claims that made us do a double take. Let's take a look at some of the biggest ones.

chefpeteevansBREAKING NEWS! The new AMA (Australian Medical Association) president wants NETFLIX to remove our film “the magic pill”. Below is my response to the journalist about my thoughts that the AMA want to remove our film...which by the way they cannot! 🙏

Does the head of the AMA believe that eating vegetables and fruit with a side of well sourced meat/seafood/eggs to be a dangerous way of life? If so can they please share the evidence that this way of eating is detrimental to the health of human beings. 

Perhaps the bigger question to ask would be, “is the head of the AMA fearful of people in Australia becoming healthy? What would this mean to their industry?” Modern medicine is fabulous and vitally needed as we do say in the film, however, when 70-80% of illness is diet/lifestyle related, then shouldn’t prevention be a considered approach? The information that is shared in the film by leading cardiologists, neurologists, doctors and scientists has prevention at the top of their priorities and to be used as an adjunct to modern medicine which then ultimately is a holistic approach. 

Can you also ask why doctors are not allowed to give dietary advice (please see the recent silencing of dr gary Fettke in Tasmania) yet the head of the AMA who is a doctor, somehow is allowed to speak on this topic with authority, when his counterparts cannot? As for their referrals to dietitians can you also ask why the DAA have multinational food companies as partners....surely this is a conflict of interest?

So going back to the initial question, why does the head of the AMA believe that choosing to eat a non inflammatory diet that is promoted by doctors in our film considered dangerous to the humans that choose wisely what they put into their bodies? Time and time again these simple changes have a long lasting sustainable positive impact on people’s lives. Or is the bigger picture for the AMA, that this simple approach may actually hurt the industries that rely on a large % of the population being sick? 

I am happy to give you the email addresses to the doctors interviewed for any questions you may have. For whole story visit my FB
