one of the reasons this site wants links and evidence is so its easier to get to the truth. you have written, in the last day or so, so many not quite right statements I don't even know where to begin.Who and where is this "overwhelming majority" you're talking about? Certainly not on this site? And yes, Bill, it is hard being right most of the time. But its a burden I carry.
The new study doesn't show that the premise that HIGH amounts of saturate fats are bad for you is wrong. It just shows more studies are needed. http://www.nhs.uk/news/2014/03March/Pages/Saturated-fats-and-heart-disease-link-unproven.aspx
I agree that the "low fat" craze was marketed in unhealthy ways to the general public. Marketed being the key word here. It's not the science that is flawed, it is the marketing. And/or lack of education given to the public. Many people do assume if they eat something that says low fat they can eat as much or more of it because its healthy, when in fact it may have as many calories , being wicked high in salt etc.
You lost weight because you cut out bad carbs, not because you eat a lot of fat. I eat a lot of fat too and I'm very thin, doesn't mean we're healthy or not clogging our arteries!
Misperceptions/ lack of full data by the public isn't sciences fault. scientists are responsible for the science. its the teachers and doctors etc job to educate us FULLY about the science.
