There is a struggle in the health community to understand all of the new science coming out on nutrition.  For example, new studies show that aturated fat is not the "cause" of heart disease, salt is not the "cause" of high blood pressure.  When these studies first came out doctors were so skeptical they often did not publish these studies. But the evidence is important and people need to see the original studies. 

Not everyone on the list below believes in fasting but they have all made contributions to understanding the current dietary crisis facing modern society.
