Another “reblog” of sorts… This time from Prof Grant Schofield.

Here (pdf warning) is a letter to the New Zealand Medical Association authored by Simon Thornley, George “Hopeful Geranium” Henderson and Schofield.

In short, the enormous resource spent on reducing saturated fat has led to disappointing results. While the negative evidence continues to accumulate, and continues to be dismissed, we renew our advice to the public to chew the saturated fat, and focus on restricting components of the diet that are consistently associated with poor health: sugar, and starch.

So, avoid the white stuff, eat real fresh food (nothing that comes in a box) and the rest will sort itself out.

A quick manual re-blog (does blogger talk to wordpress some other way?):

The Hopeful Geranium (George Henderson’s The High-Fat Hep C Diet ) on the rise of diabetes in India.

Quite relevant to me today as I just cooked a whole heap of fatty chicken thighs in ghee. My conclusion is that ghee is awesome. 🙂

Henderson quotes the following from B.S. Raheja on his post:

It is suggested that the real remedy for DM, ACVD and all the risk factors lies not in drugs or surgery but in the kitchen.
