Catherine Shanahan, MD is science director of the LA Lakers PRO Nutrition program, consultant for Mark Sisson's Primal BluePrint certification program, board certified Family Physician and author of the underground classic Deep Nutrition: Why Your Genes Need Traditional Food, and the easy-to-read executive summary of holistic nutrition, Food Rules: A Doctors Guide to Healthy Eating. Before medical school, she studied biochemistry and genetics at Cornell's PhD program, enabling her to recognize the fallacies in the theory that saturated fat could promote atherosclerosis. Dr Shanahan first became an advocate for real foods when she began to observe dramatic declines in the health of her patient's bone structure, immune-system function, and behavioral development in subsequent generations of patients in the same family. She attributes these changes to the two most ubiquitous processed foods in the American diet: Vegetable oils and sugars.
