Joe Rogan Experience #1175 – Chris Kresser & Dr. Joel Kahn

Chris Kresser, M.S., L.Ac is a globally recognized leader in the fields of ancestral health, Paleo nutrition, and functional and integrative medicine. Dr. Joel Kahn is one of the world’s top cardiologists and believes that plant-based nutrition is the most powerful source of preventative medicine on the planet.


  1. The ad hominem arguments against Kresser are disappointing; clearly Kahn respects him, so if one appeals to the authority of being a doctor, then his view of Chris as a peer should be valid.

    Kahn employs logical fallacies that Kresser does not: constant appeals to various authorities, bandwagon justifications, subtle red herrings etc.

    Kresser predominantly questions, Kahn predominantly claims/states; with no knowledge of the subject matter at all, one would hopefully see who is employing the greater intellectual & scientific rigour.

    I admire all 3 men for engaging in this discourse, fascinating.

    1. I agree. Chris’ mindset seems to be to disprove and / or question hypothesis (the definition of science); Joel does nothing but defend the status quo of what’s broadly accepted.

  2. I guess Joe couldn't get Taubes on so he settled for this fake doctor Paleo salesman.

  3. "It CAN though", Dr.Joel (sounding like Homer Simpson), you haven't heard of insulin resistance or arterial oxidative stress, Dr. Joel?
    Have you seen lipidology research in the last ten years? Come on man. Chris should have SKEWERED you for that nonsense. Did the AHA tell you to say that?
    Like you dont know dietary cholesterol is nearly meaningless. Cardiologists arent interested in losing money by doing less surgeries. It's TRUE. And you know that half the people in the hospital for cardiac events have low cholesterol. TC is a nearly meaningless lab value. Come on doc. This is sad.
