Some Suggested Reading ...
In light of other recent events, I present some suggested posts from this blog on the questionable accuracy of the blogging of one Peter Dobromylskyj aka Hyperlipid.
Summary: The third post in a series (links to I & II within) outlining how Peter deliberately fudged the data from the "infamous" Grey & Kipnis study. He even told his readership he was doing it and tips his hat to Ancel Keys. I feel to this day that if anyone can read this series and take Peter seriously after that. It was done in all seriousness on his part.
Summary: Peter blogged on the LIRKO mouse with a "cute" quiz about making jam from the urine of this mouse. One problem, LIRKO doesn't get glucosuria. Other claims made are also easily dispelled including that this mouse's liver (and other cells) can't process glucose so they burn through fatty acids like mad and that's why they don't get fat, and that this mouse's muscle cells "internalise their insulin receptors".
Summary: Peter compares putting a mouse on a ketogenic diet to a FIRKO mouse while there is no evidence whatsoever that KD's alter insulin receptors on fat cells, "rendering them insulin resistant" in any way meaningfully comparable to knocking them out entirely.
Summary: Highlights two definitive statements made by Peter: "Hyperglycaemia causes insulin resistance. This is not controversial, as far as I am aware", and "Excess insulin causes insulin resistance".
