…kept them from completely jettisoning cholesterol levels as the ultimate food demon.
The U.S. government is poised to withdraw longstanding warnings about cholesterol
The nation’s top nutrition advisory panel has decided to drop its caution about eating cholesterol-laden food, a move that could undo almost 40 years of government warnings about its consumption.
The group’s finding that cholesterol in the diet need no longer be considered a “nutrient of concern” stands in contrast to the committee’s findings five years ago, the last time it convened. During those proceedings, as in previous years, the panel deemed the issue of excess cholesterol in the American diet a public health concern.
The finding follows an evolution of thinking among many nutritionists who now believe that, for healthy adults, eating foods high in cholesterol may not significantly affect the level of cholesterol in the blood or increase the risk of heart disease.
The greater danger in this regard, these experts believe, lies not in products such as eggs, shrimp or lobster, which are high in cholesterol, but in too many servings of foods heavy with saturated fats, such as fatty meats, whole milk, and butter.
It ALWAYS comes back to BUTTER.
Fat guidelines lacked any solid scientific evidence, study concludes
Researchers claim dietary advice around fat consumption, followed by millions for the past 30 years, should never have been issued
Guidelines warning people to avoid eating fatty foods such as butter and cheese should not have been introduced, new research has found.
Dietary advice issued to tens of millions warned that fat consumption should be strictly limited to cut the risk of heart disease and death.
But experts say the recommendations, which have been followed for the past 30 years, were not backed up by scientific evidence and should never have been issued.
Generations of Americans have been brainwashed and ROBBED*. Pitch your Parkay packets, people!
No longer weep into your mound of mashed ‘maters that you simply “Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter”, because IT CAN be if you have the courage to make it so!
