Big Fat Surprise - Part 2

By: Dr. Gary Huber

Posted 07/21/2022

This is Part 2 of a series looking at the truth versus myth of dietary fat. The book by Nina Teicholz of the same name is a terrific exploration of how we have been manipulated by industry and government into believing myths fabricated in order to sell how harmful foods. In part 2 we explore how the American Heart Association took a $1.7 million dollar bribe from P&G to act as their spokesperson and tell the American public that man made trans fats, "Crisco" was GOOD for you. How is it that our frontiersman forefathers ate red meat all the time, more animal fat than what we eat today and yet they didnt have heart attacks? Could it be that all this talk of saturated fat being evil is just plain wrong? What are "trans" fats and why is the American Heart Association telling me they are good to eat when the science shows that they cause heart disease?
