“Why mainstream researchers think the U.S. Dietary Guidelines lack scientific rigor”


Are the US dietary guidelines – like the advice to avoid saturated fat – based on solid evidence? No, not at all, according to a new review in Circulation by Dr. Dariush Mozaffarian, the dean of the nutrition school at Tufts University. It was funded by the National Institutes of Health.

This can be seen as vindication for the author Nina Teicholz, who recently suffered a storm of criticism from no less than 180 dinosaurs. All for standing up and saying essentially the same thing in The British Medical Journal: The Emperor is naked. The blanket advice to avoid saturated fat is outdated and lacks solid scientific support.
