BBC Misrepresents Dr. T. Colin Campbell and Completely Ignores Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn 
by J. Morris Hicks

After the U.S. airing of a new documentary (below) about clean eating, Dr. Campbell posted an article on TCC CNS website. It began like this:

Dr. Giles Yeo interviewed me for the BBC. It is now abundantly clear that Yeo and the BBC intended to disparage the notion that food matters for our health.

Campbell's testimony was misrepresented and Esselstyn's was completely ignored. 

You can read Colin's entire piece at the following link. In it, he talks about the hidden agenda that was felt throughout the 59-minute documentary.  BBC, Your Credibility Is Tarnished. Since being posted on January 25, the article has been shared 4K times.

Particularly disappointing was the fact that they completely ignored all of the footage that was shot at Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn's home in Cleveland--footage that included inspiring testimonies from some of his patients who were successful in reversing their heart disease by simply following the WFPB diet. 

Dr. Esselstyn also posted an article about this BBC documentary:  BBC, Your Credibility Is Tarnished Part 2.

BBC Documentary--Dirty Truth about Clean Eating

In a January 17 article, The Telegraph featured a photo of Dr. Campbell but never even mentioned him in their review of the film, which wasn't that glowing. One other thing is that they described Giles Yeo (the director) as a "canny and charming TV natural." 

I disagreed--finding him to be arrogant, rude and condescending, as he focused on discrediting clean food "gurus," lumping Dr. Campbell in with a group that only served to tarnish Colin's sterling reputation.
