Heart Foundation must be having chest pain


The Australian Heart Foundation remains on shaky ground after the Low Carb Catalyst programme.

It must be becoming an interesting fence to sit on at the Heart Foundation these days. Do we keep taking money for the food tick and supporting the old notions of saturated fat is bad and processed seed oils being good or do we start to back down and listen to the latest research?

The Canadian Heart Foundation have recently removed their health Heart Tick programme. They are way ahead of us.

The longer the Heart Foundation stick with their sponsorship deals the more tenuous their position.

The evidence that sugars, carbohydrates, and polyunsaturated oils contribute to cardiovascular disease is mounting. I wonder who is pulling the strings at the Heart Foundation these days.

Interesting how much sponsorship they receive from the pharmaceutical industry.

MSD, Servier, Pfizer, Novartis, Astra Zeneca, Lilly, Abbot, Aspen and  Boehringer Ingelheim. That covers most of the big ones.


Reading the Heart Foundations annual report does not give us specifics but there appears several million dollars of charitable non bequest funds outside of fundraising.
