Aseem Malhotra

Aseem Malhotra

Cardiologist

Dr. Aseem Malhotra is known as one of the most outspoken cardiologists in Britain. Dr. Aseem Malhotra is successfully leading the campaign against excess sugar consumption in the United Kingdom.

“Aseem has been speaking truth to power not in one venue, but rather in three: the sugar myth, the saturated fat myth, and the statin controversy. Most importantly, he represents and strives for the health of the British people, against the special interests that would keep Britain fat and sick. Aseem’s voice is the clearest clarion call for change in the British health system today. And I am proud to consider him my good friend.” –Dr. Robert Lustig, one of leading voices on childhood obesity and diabetes in the U.S.
