The saturated fat = heart disease hypothesis is FALSE and that fact is finally getting more press

Featured in:

This article examines the shaky research behind the "saturated fat and cholesterol causes heart disease" hypothesis.

It is time this idea was put to rest. Contrary to popular belief, the research DOES NOT support the idea that consuming food that contains saturated fat and cholesterol increases one's risk of heart disease. Eating manufactured, unnatural hydrogenated oils and trans fats raises the risk, but not foods like butter, cheese, whole milk, eggs, and grass-fed meats. The bottom line is that the food guides we are being told to follow are colossally wrong.

Do read this excellent article called What if bad fat isn't bad? No one's ever proved that saturated fat clogs arteries, causes heart disease which examines the research, and then don't feel guilty eating butter!

And if the article doesn't convince you, read Gary Taubes' well-researched fresh off the press book Good Calories, Bad Calories.

Add this book to the growing collection of books that point out the real problems with the lipid hypothesis written by scientists and physicians that have actually studied the studies.

Thanks for the great bibliography on this topic. I've been reading about the same things. Looking forward to Sally Fallon's "Oiling of America" talk in March -- she's speaking in Minot, ND!
