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.
