New Review: Dietary Fat Guidelines Have No Evidence Base

When the fat-phobic guidelines were implemented there was no scientific evidence supporting them. And there still isn’t any, according to a new meta-analysis conducted by Dr. Zoe Harcombe among others:

Maybe it’s about time we drop our fear of natural fat and decrease our intake of processed food instead?

    Health Canada is working on new guidelines and a new food "pyramid". They are not consulting industry, but there's no word yet on carb advice.

    Doubt if the new will differ significantly from the old. The blind following the blind...ask yourself who funds the research and 'professional" associations, then look at from who they're soliciting advice...who's advice do you think will carry the most weight with the ignorant bureaucrats?

    We're seeking input from all interested Canadians, including:

    the general public
    health professionals
    all levels of government
    academia and researchers
    educators and communicators
    industry and trade associations
    health professional organizations
    non-government health organizations
    consumer non-government organizations

    People need to learn to take responsibility for what they eat without having someone hold their hand.

    Hey, here's a real 'professional' assoc...:-)

    The World Medical Association (WMA), the top medical-ethics body, on Friday installed an Indian doctor facing corruption charges as its president, despite controversy surrounding his appointment while legal cases are pending.
