How fat became a bigger culprit than sugar

The health guidelines in 1970s wrongly advised skimmed milk as preferable to high-fat milk. But how did fat become such an enemy?

A recent exposé showed that the sugar industry paid off Harvard scientists in 1967 to publish a false report linking heart disease and obesity with dietary fat and hide the real cause: Sugar.

As a result, for 50 years, we have been cautioned to eat low-fat food, which often contained a lot of sugar to improve the taste.

In conclusion

Do not blindly rely on official dietary guidelines.

Use common sense, wherever possible.

Be willing to change, in light of new evidence.
