“Don’t Scapegoat Big Sugar. Lots of Food Producers Profited from the Demonization of Fat”

la-1474680394-snap-photo

Recently, there were big media headlines about the revelation that the sugar industry paid Harvard researchers in the 1960s to shift blame from sugar to fat.

There has been a lot of bad science in the field of nutrition — and many “Big Tobaccos.”
– Nina Teicholz
But according to a new op-ed by Nina Teicholz, it is naive to believe that only Big Sugar played a role in this shift, since other food industries (such as corn syrup, wheat and vegetable oil producers) also capitalized tremendously on it:

LA Times: Don’t Scapegoat Big Sugar. Lots of Food Producers Profited from the Demonization of Fat

Producers from these industries also paid scientists, and the American consumption of these foods has increased even more than the sugar consumption.

The bad (and bought) nutrition science is not just about sugar.

The BMJ Criticism of the Dietary Guidelines Will NOT Be Retracted

butter1

A year ago the British Medical Journal published an article by Nina Teicholz that was very critical to the official US dietary guidelines, and the weak science supporting them. Specifically the article and the BMJ editor in chief criticized the low-fat, high-carb advice that was said to be “driving rather than solving the current epidemics of obesity and type 2 diabetes”.

The article resulted in furious resistance from old-school scientists. Even more than other people, scientists who have been deeply involved in this for decades likely have a very hard time shifting their thinking. Not fewer than 180 (!) of them signed a letter demanding the BMJ retract the article:

After an investigation, The BMJ has just now decided not to retract the article. They stand by it, as they should:

Fortunately The BMJ and its leadership refuse to be intimidated by those who would prefer to stop inconvenient questions and censor scientific debate.

Current dietary advice has completely failed to stop the epidemics of obesity and type 2 diabetes, and may very well have made them worse. We can’t solve the problem by forbidding people to talk about it.

How Much Protein Should You Eat?

How much of this should you really eat?

How much is too much?

As we discussed last week, excessive protein is turned into glucose and then to fat. But how much protein is excessive? That’s the real question that stirs up all kinds of controversy. The Recommended Daily Allowance for an adult is 0.8 g/kg per day. How did we get that number? Let’s start at the beginning.

First, I am only dealing with the steady state here. If you are trying to build muscle (body building) then you would need more protein. If you are pregnant or breast feeding or a child still growing, then protein requirements are higher because you are trying to add protein to your body. This discussion only deals with adults at a relatively stable state. Continue Reading →
