about the producer / director
For 4 years, Justin was based at the BBC in West London as a personal trainer, sports massage therapist and nutrition coach.
In 2007, Justin set out to write a book about common nutritional myths. At this time, he was already aware of the issues surrounding cholesterol and planned to devote one chapter of his book to this subject. However, after looking into the subject in more detail, he was shocked to find just how much evidence, contrary to the diet-heart hypothesis, existed. The natural progression was to base his whole book on this subject.
Justin's book $29 Billion Reasons to Lie About Cholesterol was published in 2009, and the following year, he started the preliminary work on the documentary film Statin Nation.
Before his career as a health practitioner, Justin obtained a degree in engineering. He believes that this scientific background has provided him with the ability to evaluate published research and the conclusions that are drawn from it.
Justin was also a competitive cyclist for nine years.
