A Legend in Metabolic Health Shares How to Stay Healthy

Analysis by Dr. Joseph Mercola Fact Checked

Story at-a-glance -

  • February 2, 2020, Richard L. Veech, M.D., Ph.D., passed away at the age of 84
  • Veech was a leader and pioneer of our understanding of how ketones work biologically as he spent more than 50 years studying human metabolism at Harvard, Oxford and the NIH
  • He discovered the ketone body beta-hydroxybutyrate has the unique ability to supercharge energy (ATP) production. Beta-hydroxybutyrate is generated in your liver when you fast or eat a ketogenic diet

February 2, 2020, Richard L. Veech, M.D., Ph.D., passed away. He was 84. According to reports, he “died quietly in his sleep.” Veech has earned a place in medical history as a leader and pioneer of the ketogenic diet, having spent more than 50 years studying human metabolism as a biochemist.

I deeply regret not having interviewed him as he was a giant in the field. I was intimated by his pedigree and vast knowledge of not only molecular biology but the thermodynamics associated with biologic reactions. However, I think we would have had a great dialog. Thankfully Dave Asprey did a great job in the interview above.
