Cardiologist, Author and Health Crusader
“The food you eat is making you sick and the agencies that are providing you with guidelines on what to eat are giving dangerous advice with devastating health consequences. You can change that today.”
William Davis, MD, FACC is cardiologist and author of the #1 New York Times bestsellers Wheat Belly: Lose the Wheat, Lose the Weight, and Find Your Path Back to Health and Undoctored: Why Health Care Has Failed You and How You Can Become Smarter Than Your Doctor.
The driving theme in all of cardiologist Dr. William Davis’ books is self-empowerment, providing readers with powerful tools that cut through the misinterpretations, misconceptions, misleading marketing, and bad science that passes as nutritional and health information.
Conventional nutritional advice has led the country, now the world, into record-setting epidemics of obesity, diabetes, and other “modern” health conditions.
Dr. Davis’ powerful, contrary messages help readers avoid or even reverse many of the conditions acquired by engaging in today’s nutrition mistakes.
His books have sold over 3 million copies in the North American market and are published in 37 countries. Major national media appearances include the Dr. Oz Show, CBS This Morning, National Public Radio, and Live with Kelly (Ripa), featured on Bill O’Reilly and the Colbert Report, and in print media including the covers of First for Women and Woman’s World magazines, the New York Post, the Chicago Tribune, the Atlantic, and Women’s Health. Dr. Davis has built a substantial online presence on his Wheat Belly Blog (www.wheatbellyblog.com) with more than 700,000 visits per month, over 20 million views since launch in September, 2011. There are also substantial followings on social media, including over 300,000 followers on Facebook. More than a book, more than social media, the Wheat Belly phenomenon has proven to be a movement, growing over time and creating an audience eager for food solutions that are healthy, delicious, convenient, and consistent with the Wheat Belly message.
Dr. Davis is a graduate of the St. Louis University School of Medicine, with training in internal medicine and cardiovascular disease at the Ohio State University Hospitals, advanced training in angioplasty at the Case Western Reserve University Hospitals where he also served as Director of the Cardiovascular Fellowship and Assistant Professor of Medicine. He now focuses on preventive care and providing self-empowering strategies to the public through his books and projects.
