Fat Facts

The Truth about Fat…

Public Deception Regarding Dietary Fats

We all heard about cholesterol and dietary fats “clogging up your arteries” and “causing heart disease.” Since 1960s, “eat less fat, in particular, less saturated fat and cholesterol” has been emphasized by health authorities. For decades we have been “brain washed” in that direction by popular media, advertisements and labels on our food.

The pharmaceutical industry is now working very hard on its ultimate goal: to put everybody on “preventative” cholesterol lowering medication.

This is how the Western society ended up in this bizarre situation?

  • “Diet-heart hypothesis” was first proposed in the USA in 1953.
  • First US dietary recommendations based on this hypothesis were introduced in 1980.

  • Public health advice aimed to eliminate cholesterol and saturated fat from our diet.
  • For decades we’ve been warned that eating saturated fat, the type found in meat, cheese, and other dairy foods, can lead to heart disease. We have been told to choose instead healthy fats from nuts, seeds, fish, and vegetable oils.
  • Experts assumed that heart disease epidemic might be stopped by reducing cholesterol and saturated fat in our diet. However, this was an untested hypothesis without medical research involving human subjects.
  • Research in recent years found no link between saturated fat and heart disease.

There are internationally accepted rules for conducting credible science. According to these rules only one observation should be enough to disprove a hypothesis! There are hundreds of studies, which prove that the diet-heart hypothesis is a big mistake!
