And current dietary advice to replace saturated fats with carbohydrates or omega 6-rich polyunsaturated fats is based on flawed and incomplete data from the 1950s, argues the author. Dietary guidelines should be urgently reviewed and the vilification of saturated fats stopped to save lives, he insists.

  • Great.

    I bet all experts on MUFA/PUFA/SFA and so called "balanced diet" will be silent on this.

  • Its buried under the influence of food industries & world bodies

  • And forums are exposing them with the help of Dr Google. Pundits are worried so call all forums junk. Looks like even ADA forums are junk as per those pundits as there are 1000+ posts even on ADA forum regarding the diet that they have no clue about :)

  • Nice to see posts like this; science rather than opinion based.
