I have to admit I am looking forward to the day that these two recalcitrant organisations will back down on their stands on Polyunsaturated Oils being ‘good’ versus Saturated Fats being ‘bad’.
And then to admit that Sugar and Refined Carbohydrates are the leading cause of modern Disease.
I think it is just around the corner. Most of my medical colleagues will have to be sharing in that ‘Humble Pie’ as well. Hope there is enough to go around!
This weeks Catalyst Programme was right to ‘The Heart of the Matter’
Dr Robert Grenfell of the Australian Heart Association ‘We are limited by the evidence base at this time’..to support the stand of Saturated vs Polyunsaturated Fats that they have been advocating for 40 years.
I have had a lot of discussions with numerous levels of bureaucracy recently and most people find it a challenge to reconsider the indoctrination that we have had from the food industry, government and advisory boards.
There is a lot of denial out there that our food might just be responsible for our health.
The challenge is to not just change ourselves but to change the indoctrination that we have had from the food industry, government and advisory boards that continue to deny the latest research.
