    But - is it the fats themselves that are bad? Or is the real problem - as some scientists are starting to suspect - what they come in?

    One is too many a thousand not enough.

    Very encouraging article. We could have told him that ages ago.

    Only thing is will people who are uncertain still buy the highly processed spreadable fat in tubs rather than proper butter, dripping, lard....etc

    Still a bit on the fence though.

    I think it's worth reading the full text from the BMJ
    WHO draft guidelines on dietary saturated and trans fatty acids: time for a new approach?
    I think the discussion section is the closest we are going to get to an admission the guidelines were wrong.

    The recommendations fail to take into account considerable evidence that the health effects of saturated fat varies depending on the specific fatty acid and on the specific food source
    This to me, seems the crux of the matter
    Trust the process, the results will come
