The paradigm shift continues and the outdated fear of fat is on its way out faster and faster.
Just eat what you like and forget what the 'experts' say...
Guidelines that told millions of people to avoid butter and full-fat milk should never have been introduced, say experts.The startling assertion challenges advice that has been followed by the medical profession for 30 years.The experts say the advice from 1983, aimed at reducing deaths from heart disease, lacked any solid trial evidence to back it up.
The big story in all the papers this week is that butter is good for you, after all.I say “after all” because for most of my life butter has been widely touted by the Health Establishment as the dietary equivalent of Polonium-210. That’s why, when you go to the supermarket, every other product on the shelves screams at you about how healthily “low fat” it is; why, at some high-street coffee chains, you can’t get your latte made with full-fat milk even if you ask because they only do “skimmed” or “semi-skimmed”; and why, perhaps most damningly, we’re currently experiencing an epidemic of obesity and type 2 diabetes.
