How many people got in trouble by following a high fat AND high sugar diet, AKA the Western Diet, and then were told by their cardiologists that "you need to follow a low fat diet, low cholesterol and low salt" and then died of stroke and other problems because the human brain is MADE OF FAT AND CHOLESTEROL and our cells rely on salt?
Come on, this is a disaster. They were fattening people up like feed lot cattle for decades. A bowl of raisin bran cereal has the same glycemic index as a can of pepsi. (or coke, if that's your brand). But that box of raisin bran has a "heart healthy" logo doesn't it?
There needs to be lawsuits. How many of our grandparents and parents were killed by this lie?
People who go "low carb" or at least avoid blatant and hidden sugars but eat high fat foods see improvements in blood pressure, cholesterol ratios, weight, triglycerides and blood sugar levels.
